Pepperdine University is committed to the safety and security of our students, faculty, and staff members wherever they are in the world. We are aware of the recent video in which a purported member of ISIS makes a threat of violence against Washington, DC. The FBI has released a statement noting that at this time there does not appear to be a specific or credible threat to the United States. However, Pepperdine University will continue to closely monitor the situation and will share more information with our community as needed. We work closely with local and national government agencies as well as a private global security firm in order to do our best to protect our community as is reasonably possible.
