» Chapman's Commitment to Sustainability

Chapman University is committed to a campus culture that promotes a sustainable future. This commitment is instrumental to Chapman’s mission to educate ethical and informed global citizens. As such, it calls upon all constituencies of the University to carefully evaluate short- and long-term social, economic, and environmental impacts of decisions before acting. The University demonstrates this commitment through sustainable practices in strategic planning and ongoing operations as well as sustainability-focused educational programs, research, and community engagement.

Chapman's Office of Sustainability

In 2011, the University hired its first Energy Conservation and Sustainability Manager as a part of the Facilities Management Department to enhance, support, and promote existing efforts on campus.

The Office of Sustainability plays a major role in designing and implementing strategies to reduce Chapman's environmental impact through water conservation, energy efficiency, waste reduction, and education.
