Welcome to the Chapman 家庭

Chapman's personalized education gives each student a unique opportunity to become an original thinker who rises to the world’s challenges. We’re here to make something: films, 商业模式, lines of code—to bring them to life and deliver them to the world. 

Our inclusive, empowering community fosters creative thinking and expression of all perspectives. Chapman’s campus is the perfect size—not too big, not too small—allowing for effective, innovative programs to be a focal point of our institution. We work to connect 学生 to 教师 and the community to keep 学生 engaged in the larger world.

We're here to see what we can do. So when we have finally reached where we've worked so hard to be, we'll have every experience at Chapman inside us. Every person we found inspirational behind us. Every lesson we learned within us.
And everything we will become in front of us.
