A Note from the Dean

The Chapman University mission is to provide a personalized education of distinction. I strongly believe that this mission extends beyond the four years you will spend with us on campus. We strive to be a resource for you throughout your career because your success is our success, and we rejoice in your accomplishments. As an alumnus, you will also be a great role model and resource for the next generation of CoPA students and, as you will find, these connections are particularly important in the performing arts. It is thanks to our alumni that we have increased our reputation in the real world, and it is important that we hear from you to continue our growth and to support you.
