The collection documents convocation programs at Pepperdine, annual Founder's Day ceremonies, and the inaugurations of Pepperdine presidents.

Background
From its beginning, Pepperdine has included regular assemblies where students gather to worship, hear engaging speakers encourage and challenge them with God's word, and learn more about how they can make a difference in this world. Chapel and convocation programs are the contemporary connection to this integral aspect of Pepperdine's Christian mission. All Seaver undergraduate students are required to attend the equivalent of one convocation program each week.
