Letter from the President: Philip Goodrich

Welcome to the official website for the Chapman University Student Government Association! 

 

The Student Government Association is dedicated to making positive change on Chapman’s campus. Our job is to advocate for student needs and concerns to improve every aspect of the college experience.

 

It is evident that our campus community is currently facing a multitude of challenges. A global pandemic has altered our educational experience, impacted our personal lives, and created a sense of unpredictability for all that lies ahead.

 

Recent incidents have highlighted the deep racial injustices that plague our nation and have illustrated many areas of needed improvement for our own University. And to top it all off, our country and society seem more divided than ever, leading to a great deal of frustration, trepidation, and angst about the fate of our world. 

 

Despite these challenges, please know that SGA is fully operational and is here for every member of our Chapman family. We can promise that we will do everything in our power to assist and advocate for the student body during these troubling times. There is light at the end of the tunnel, Panthers, and while it may seem impossible, we will get through this. 

 

Whether you are a student, parent, alum, or other member of the Chapman community, I encourage you to use this site to explore all that SGA has to offer. If you have any questions, comments, ideas, or concerns, please reach out to us by using the information below. Be well, stay safe, and paws up.
