Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
The collection contains materials related to the Graduate School of Education and Psychology (GSEP) and its predecessors. Most items were collected from Dean Olaf H. Tegner's office, and range in date from 1964 to 2005. Materials include advertisements, class schedules, correspondence, budgets, curriculum proposals, meeting notes, faculty files, audiovisual recordings of GSEP dinners, and other items.
At George Pepperdine College, Education and Psychology were initially two separate departments. In 1957, Olaf H. Tegner was named head of the Education Department, then appointed dean of the School of Education in 1970. The School of Education offered Pepperdine's first doctoral degree, the Ed.D., in 1976. After Pepperdine's Los Angeles campus closed in 1981, the School of Education merged with the Psychology Division and both moved to a business park in West Los Angeles named Pepperdine University Plaza. In 1982, the schools were renamed as the Graduate School of Education and Psychology (GSEP).
