Apply to Serve on the Board of Directors

Are you passionate about making a tangible difference at Chapman? Consider serving on our Board of Directors and you'll embark on a rewarding journey of leadership and service.

Commitment Overview:

  • Board members serve for three years, providing you with ample opportunity to contribute to Chapman's growth and impact.
  • There are four meetings per year to strategize, plan, and evaluate alumni initiatives. While we understand the demands of busy schedules, we request that members attend at least one meeting in person. However, all meetings offer a Zoom link for remote participation, ensuring accessibility and flexibility for all members.
  • All board members are asked to serve on at least one committee. Your involvement in these committees will allow you to dive deeper into specific areas of interest, collaborate with fellow board members, and drive meaningful change.

The strongest candidates for the Board are individuals who:

  • Want to share their expertise and talents to advance the goals of the Alumni Association
  • Are able to invest their time and efforts in Chapman's future to benefit all alumni and students
  • Attend Chapman events to engage alumni, staff and others
  • Ideally have volunteered with the Alumni Association or in an alumni capacity for Chapman University
  • Are willing to give to Chapman University annually (Note: The key here is participation, not the amount of the gift.)
  • Are connected with other alumni and/or can otherwise influence involvement with Chapman University
