Pepperdine University School of Public Policy
The School of Public Policy (SPP) is the youngest of the University's five schools, established in 1996 after one year of existence as a freestanding institute of the University. The mission of the nonpartisan School of Public Policy is to take a student-centered approach to studying the multidisciplinary field of public policy. The school aims to properly equip its graduates with conceptual and economic tools of analysis necessary for the profession. It also seeks to encourage students toward the self-discovery and self-examination required to become leaders with clearly defined values and moral certainties who can then effectively change, design, or create the organizations that serve society.
