U.S. Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos paid a visit to the Pepperdine School of Public Policy this week to discuss her life, American education policy and leadership.

A standing ovation welcomed the secretary in the School of Public Policy’s Wilburn Auditorium Wednesday night as part of their “Patricia Tagliaferri Dean’s Distinguished Lecture Series.” President Jim Gash, First Lady Joline Gash and Provost Rick Marrs were in attendance. The event was invite-only and not listed on any Pepperdine events website, so attendees only filled about half of the auditorium.
