The Chapman Diversity Project, sponsored by the Office of the Provost, endeavors to bring students, staff, faculty, administrators and trustees together for meaningful dialogue focused on developing strategic priorities and recommendations for diversity and inclusion at Chapman.

Chapman’s Advisory Groups evaluate and recommend services, policies and programs for enhancing diversity and inclusion. Each Advisory Group is comprised of students, staff, faculty, administrators and trustees and is open to people of all identities. Learn more about the Advisory Group on the Status of People of Color.


The Cross-Cultural Center fosters the exploration and affirmation of the unique identities at Chapman University. Programs and services encourage students to explore, celebrate, and share their diverse cultures and traditions; further examine and cultivate the multiple aspects of their personal identities; develop an appreciation of and respect for diversity; and hone their skills in cross-cultural leadership and dialogue while creating a welcoming and inclusive campus community.
