Inclement Weather and Modified Operations for Tomorrow (2/24)

Posted on

Pepperdine officials are monitoring severe weather conditions expected to affect Los Angeles County beginning Friday, February 24, and continuing into the weekend. Due to a number of unique factors including unexpected and disruptive weather patterns and the potential for heavy rain, limited visibility, debris flows, rock slides, and mudslides on canyon roads and Pacific Coast Highway, business operations will be modified at all of Pepperdine’s Southern California campuses. Please note the following updates to campus operations:

  • Seaver College and Caruso School of Law (CSOL) classes scheduled for Friday, February 24, are canceled. 
  • Graduate School of Education and Psychology (GSEP), Graziadio Business School (PGBS), and School of Public Policy (SPP) classes will be held online on Friday, February 24. Professors will be in touch with further details. 
  • Faculty and staff working on the Malibu, West Los Angeles, Calabasas, and Irvine campuses are encouraged to work remotely and should connect with their supervisors to determine if they need to report to campus.
  • Critical support personnel may need to report to campuses and should follow established departmental protocols for determining whether to come to campus if they can do so safely.

Events scheduled to take place at one of Pepperdine’s Southern California campuses tomorrow and this weekend are subject to change with little notice. If you are planning to attend an on-campus event, please check the status with the sponsoring department. Dining Services will remain in operation, and food service will be available on the Malibu campus. For updated hours and locations, please visit the Pepperdine Dining Services website.
