The Fall 2018 issue of Pepperdine Magazine highlights stories of those who have enthusiastically taken initiative to travel down unknown paths, determined to make a difference in places yet unexplored. Alumni from around the globe are spreading their passion for purpose, service, and leadership by breaking new grounds in medicine, law, finance, education, and the arts. The School of Public Policy partnered with a community college in Northern California to encourage Hayward residents to partake in civic engagement; former Division I swimmer and mental health counselor Stephanie (Prince) Donaldson (’03) becomes the first-ever director of athletic performance at Boise State University; and international traveler Michael Bennett (MBA ’06, EdD ’13) provides the tools and resources to help others create journeys of self-discovery.
