Parents and families are an essential and valued part of the Chapman community. Our Office of Parent & Family Engagement will be your partner to connect you to campuses, our resources, and to each other, creating a welcoming and nurturing environment for your students by: 

  • Welcoming you at every stage of your journey.
  • Helping you navigate campus resources, including phone, email, Facebook, and e-newsletters. 
  • Hosting and recommending a variety of events, programs, and activities for your participation and continued learning, locally and regionally.
  • Providing meaningful volunteer activities to keep you involved.

We do all of this to provide you with a personalized Chapman Experience that will inspire your connection to the Chapman Family for life.
