Leading Faith-Based University Embraces Obama's Transgender Mandate
Pepperdine University is a private California school affiliated with the Churches of Christ. In terms of a total number of students, Pepperdine is the largest Church of Christ-affiliated university in the U.S., with a total student body of approximately 7,500.
As a university that identifies itself as Christian, Pepperdine advertises its adherence to biblical morals.
“Founded in the Church of Christ tradition, Pepperdine University proudly upholds Christian values,” the university’s website states. “We believe these values complement and support the pursuit of knowledge.”
However, despite the school’s stated adherence to these values, it recently embraced the U.S. Department of Education’s controversial stance on “transgender” students.
As previously reported, the U.S. government in May began urging schools to allow students to use the restrooms corresponding with their “gender identity” or else lose federal funding. The guidelines are based on the Obama Administration’s interpretation of Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972.
