The summer 2011 issue of Pepperdine Magazine shares stories of individuals who have embarked on their own personal and intellectual paths of discovery: alumni who traveled the globe as Peace Corps volunteers; Professor Ed Larson, who journeyed to Antarctica to capture tales of exploration to that stark and distant terrain; and faculty from the Graziadio School of Business and Management as well as the Graduate School of Education and Psychology, who navigate the paths all professionals wander through while on the road to workplace satisfaction.
