Competing With Purpose

Pepperdine is a Christian university committed to the highest standards of academic excellence and Christian values, where students are strengthened for lives of purpose, service, and leadership.

The Pepperdine University Athletics Department is committed to Christian values, to the academic well­-being of all of our student­-athletes and to competing for championships. We prepare students for success by challenging them to think differently - find your purpose, serve others and lead by example.

We strive to create a culture that builds a diverse community of fellowship, values individual differences, and fosters a sense of belonging. Only through the full inclusion and acceptance of each member of our community can we complete the transformative educational process and enrich the quality of our learning, development, and competitive drive. Through our faith and commitment to each other, we continue to maintain an environment where we are better and stronger together.

The Competing with Purpose mission highlights the commitment to our core values that student­-athletes, coaches and staff dedicate themselves to daily. Competing with Purpose provides the foundation on which champions are built. Meet our exceptional student-athletes on the Competing With Purpose blog.
