» Center for Undergraduate Excellence

The mission of the Center for Undergraduate Excellence is to support Chapman University's goal of providing personalized education by promoting and facilitating student-faculty mentored and collaborative research, scholarship, and creative activities.

Beyond the classroom, in every discipline, many students build their scholarly research and creative skills by participating in student-initiated research or creative activity and/or by assisting with faculty-initiated research or creative activity.

Involvement in research, scholarship, and creative activity at the undergraduate level has been demonstrated as a high-impact educational practice with numerous benefits for students, including increased retention, graduation, and graduate school enrollment rates; improved critical thinking, creativity, and problem-solving skills; intellectual independence and confidence; and enhanced understanding of research methodologies and practices within a given discipline.

Our programs help Chapman University’s ambitious students thrive and grow, and the events highlight undergraduate achievements and encourage intellectual community.
