Activities and Events
NEW EVENT | Strategic Plan Virtual Forum | Monday, November 9, 2020 | 5 PM (PST)
On November 2, Seaver College will release the initial draft of its 2030 Strategic Plan. This plan will outline the strategic direction and primary strategic initiatives for the College over the next decade. As we continue to advance and refine the strategic plan prior to its completion in early 2021, Seaver College Dean, Michael Feltner, invites alumni to share their thoughts and provide feedback on the 2030 strategic plan.
Join us Monday November 9 from 5:00 – 6:30 PM (PST) to participate in an online forum hosted by Dean Feltner and the Seaver and George Pepperdine College Alumni Relations team.
During this virtual forum, Dean Feltner will provide a brief overview of the strategic plan. Alumni will be invited to submit thoughts and comments following the presentation.
All feedback on the plan will be thoughtfully considered by both Dean Feltner and the strategic plan leadership teams as they continue to refine the plan.
Pepperdine Alumni Book Club
Get lost in a new book with the Pepperdine Alumni Book Club!
You're invited to vote for the next book club selection beginning on Tuesday, August 18! The next reading period is October 15th - December 17.
In this online community, you can connect with fellow Waves while discussing a wide range of books. The book club connects through a private online forum where participants can discuss the current book and learn from one another.
The current Pepperdine Alumni Book Club session began reading Bryan Stevenson's Just Mercy on August 6.
Stevenson's book is a powerful reflection not only on his own career and work as a lawyer defending the rights of marginalized and disempowered Americans, but also on the state of the United States justice system, and what we need to do in order to reform it.
The Seaver Speaker Series
The Seaver Speaker Series is an opportunity to have an insightful conversation with our Seaver family, and explore ideas with some of Pepperdine's brightest minds. With this series we will share stories, make connections, and help to build a brighter future. The Seaver Speaker Series was created in a partnership with the Seaver and George Pepperdine College Alumni Relations Office and the Seaver Career Center.
