Geskiedenis


in Februarie 1937, against the backdrop of the Great Depression, George Pepperdine founded the university as a Christian liberal arts college in the city of Los Angeles. op September 21, 1937, 167 new students from 22 different states and two other countries entered classes on a newly built campus on 34 akker (14 hy het) at West 79th Street and South Vermont Avenue in the Vermont Knolls neighborhood of South Central Los Angeles, referred to later as the Vermont Avenue campus. By April 6, 1938, George Pepperdine College was fully accredited by the Northwest Association.

Pepperdine had built a fortune founding and developing the Western Auto Supply Company, which he started with a $5 belegging, but his prosperity led to his greater ambition to discoverhow humanity can be helped most with the means entrusted to care. Considered it wrong to build up a great fortune and use it selfishly.” Mnr. Pepperdine voiced his twofold objective for the college that bore his name, “eerste, we want to provide first-class, fully accredited academic training in the liberal arts … Tweedens, we are especially dedicated to a greater goal—that of building in the student a Christ-like life, a love for the church, and a passion for the souls of mankind.

By the 1960s, the young college faced serious problems. The area around the Vermont Avenue campus developed issues with crime and urban decay; tensions also arose due to the Civil Rights Movement and attempts to circumvent it such as California Proposition 14, which challenged federal fair housing laws. The situation exploded in the 1965 Watts Riots. in 1969 activists in the Watts area threatened to burn down the campus; egter, they were talked out of it after all-night negotiations by then-President M. Norvel Young.In addition, the Vermont Avenue campus was running out of room to expand.

in 1967, the school began planning to move the undergraduate campus and a committee was formed to look at alternative locations, including sites in Valencia, Orange County, Ventura County and Westlake Village. Pepperdine favored the Westlake Village location until the Adamson-Rindge family, who owned hundreds of acres near Malibu, offered 138 akker (56 hy het) van grond. Despite concerns over building costs on the mountainous site, the school decided to move forward based on its prime location and potential for raising donations. Construction began on April 13, 1971 and the new campus opened for student enrollment in September 1972. The campus and many of its buildings were planned by Los Angeles-based architect and urban planner William Pereira.

The old campus was sold to Crenshaw Christian Center, whose minister, Frederick K.C. Price, then oversaw construction of theFaithDome,” the largest domed-church in the United States, seating over 10,000.

Pepperdine gained university status in 1971 when the school of law was added and the business and education departments became separate schools. In die 1980's, Pepperdine rose to prominence as one of the United Statesleading centers of conservative politics, attracting many conservative-leaning professors from nearby UCLA and USC. Prominent conservatives on the Pepperdine faculty have included Bruce Herschensohn, Ben Stein, Kenneth Starr, Arthur Laffer, Douglas Kmiec, and Daniel Pipes.

in 1985, 1993 en 1996, massive brushfires threatened the campus with destruction, but firefighters successfully protected almost all structures. op Oktober 21, 2007, fast-moving wildfires forced campus residents to relocate and shelter in the Firestone Field house and Cafeteria, plus evacuations of local homes and businesses. Net so, another November 2007 fire in Corral Canyon, accidentally set off by a group of Los Angeles youths, caused an evacuation of the Drescher Campus. Maar, most students were off-campus for the Thanksgiving holiday.
