World-Class Faculty Who Know Your Name

Our faculty graduated from the same prestigious schools as their colleagues at other world-class universities. They do the same caliber of research. They speak at the same international conferences. They get interviewed on national television, write textbooks, and garner national awards. The only difference from their colleagues is that our faculty know their students by name.

Chapman Forward

From documentary film to environmental science, research is on the rise at Chapman. Reflecting the growth in transformative projects and our world-class facilities, the University has launched a new research publication called Chapman Forward. In the inaugural issue, you’ll find stories on diverse subjects such as changes in natural ecosystems, maternal and child health, and studies of extremist groups and terrorism.

“This is an exciting time,” says Thomas Piechota, vice president for research, “and we invite you along for the journey.”
