Loqui: A Celebration of Diversity and Inclusive Excellence
Friday, April 28th, 2017 at 1 p.m. in Smothers Theatre
LOQUI brings us together in a spirit of unity through diversity. A Christian university, Pepperdine roots its educational mission as a diverse learning community in the animating work of a triune God, whose perfect unity in diversity brings to us life abundantly with meaning and significance. By celebrating today, we recognize that multiple cultures shape the educational community we share as lifelong learners. When considering the signature themes of the institution's mission — purpose, service, and leadership — we pause to acknowledge the University's commitment to diversity and inclusion, as part of our Christian faith witness. We honor our graduates and the distinct cultures that shape the Pepperdine experience and deepen our collective sense of belonging.
