Historical note

The Pepperdine University School of Public Policy was officially founded in 1997, incorporating its predecessor the Institute for Public Policy (opened in 1996). The first dean was Dr. James Wilburn. The first public policy class had the honor of meeting Mikhail Gorbachev, the last head of state of the former USSR, on October 18, 1997. The school currently enrolls approximately 100 students taking classes towards a Master of Public Policy degree, or joint degrees with the School of Law or Graziadio School of Business and Management are also available. The Davenport Institute is the research and special program division of the School of Public Policy, which holds conferences and seminars and publishes research related to current issues in public policy.
