You Can Make a Difference

With the support and partnership of its benefactors, the commitment of faculty and administration, and diligent adherence to Pepperdine's mission of scholarship and service, the School of Public Policy has become a vital laboratory for policy education and leadership in the United States and throughout the world.


Our Unique Founding

The Pepperdine School of Public Policy was founded almost two decades ago by noted scholars and leaders like James Q. Wilson, Jack Kemp, Michael Novak, and others as a response to what was being offered on America's policy school landscape. While many programs offer a technocratic approach to policy development, we invite students to consider the multiple dimensions that affect actual policy implementation, offering a comprehensive curriculum ground in both policy analysis and an exceptional understanding of policy's moral and distinctly American elements--cultural, historical, and constitutional.
