The event, hosted by Pepperdine's Graduate School of Education and Psychology (GSEP), is part of the Margaret J. Weber Distinguished Lecture Series at GSEP. The series theme for 2016-2017 is Wholeness: The Intersection of Faith, Intellect, and Culture. The gathering will explore how the values of faith, intellect, and culture can connect and contribute to a life of wholeness.
Having devoted much of his professional career to teaching, writing, and speaking, Dr. West is arguably one of the nation's most well-regarded experts on a variety of social issues. Most recently he served as Professor of Philosophy and Christian Practice at Union Theological Seminary. He holds emeritus status at Princeton and has also taught at Yale, Harvard, and the University of Paris.
Dr. West will deliver a keynote speech followed by a conversation with Pepperdine Provost, Rick R. Marrs, with questions prompted by the audience.
Join us February 24 at the Hilton Los Angeles Airport to hear Dr. Cornel West speak about justice at the intersection of faith, intellect, and culture.
