"Whether a student targets a career in healthcare, explores the world of computation, is passionate about the intersection of science and policy, or needs a firm foundation for graduate school, a rigorous education in the science is a critical first step.”

- Andrew Lyon, Ph.D., Dean of Schmid College of Science and Technology

Your gift to Schmid College of Science and Technology supports our mission to enrich undergraduate and graduate science education through hands-on research; create an environment of excellence in science by providing undergraduate and graduate students and faculty with cutting-edge facilities and equipment for teaching, learning, and research; support cutting-edge research and innovative teaching by availing faculty to opportunities to explore ideas and implement novel pedagogies.

+ - Assistive Technology Support Fund

Your gift to the Assistive Technology Support Fund will support Chapman's Machine Learning and Assistive Technology (MLAT) Lab MLAT Lab was founded in January 2015 with the goal of providing a formal organization for researchers at Chapman dedicated to leveraging technology to improve the understanding and treatment of developmental disorders.

While our projects vary from machine learning to virtual reality to bioinformatics, we all work together to apply cutting-edge science to clinical, educational, and medical domains. In particular, we specialize in understanding the screening, treatment, and management of autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Together with our collaborators we try to get innovative technologies deployed to the people that stand to benefit the most from them.

Led by Dr. Erik Linstead '01, our team contains expertise in the areas of predictive analytics, software engineering, molecular biology, and artificial intelligence. We look forward to pioneering assistive technologies for autism and related disorders for many years to come.  Support Now »

+ - Center of Excellence in Computation, Algebra and Topology (CECAT)

The mission of the Center of Excellence in Computation, Algebra and Topology (CECAT) is to provide a forum for world class interdisciplinary research where computation meets algebra, topology and related mathematical fields.

The CECAT has a track record of supporting its mission by hosting workshops that attract national and international visitors, attracting national and international visitors for research collaboration, developing affiliations with research groups at fellow institutions, seeking external funding and developing online mathematical resources.

In addition, the Center will seek to support post-doctoral fellows and graduate students in affiliation with Chapman's graduate programs in Computational Sciences. Support Now »

+ - Center of Excellence in Complex and Hypercomplex Analysis (CECHA)

The Center of Excellence in Complex and Hypercomplex Analysis (CECHA) is a group of mathematicians and physicists from the Schmid College of Science and Technology at Chapman University who joined some of their national and international collaborators to form this Center of Excellence. The research conducted under the center's umbrella is mainly motivated by the latest results in Clifford and Hypercomplex Analysis and endeavors to find new ways in which this research can be applied in mathematics and physics.

The members of this center of excellence draw on their research experience and use analytical and computational techniques to build sound differential and integral theories in this context, as well as possible applications in Quantum Physics and other interdisciplinary fields. Support Now »

+ - Food Science Fund for Excellence

Today, food science represents one of the healthiest industries in the world, with the various food industries – from processing to sales – contributing close to $42.2 billion to our national economy. Your gift will support graduate students and faculty member reasearch for Chapman University’s Master of Science in Food Science program. Support Now »

+ - Schmid College Fund for Academic Excellence

With your help, Schmid College can fund new professorships and chairs, innovative research and teaching, post-doctoral researchers, visiting professors, national and international conferences and other academic on-campus initiatives in a wide range of foundational disciplines, including biology, chemistry, biochemistry, math, physics and computer science, as well as in advanced disciplines such as computational or food science.
