» Fall 2021 Programming & Resources

Hello Panthers!   

As we move into the summer months, we are looking ahead to the start of the new academic year when we can hopefully see everyone in person.  We can't wait for you to enjoy the Chapman experience with the usual array of robust educational and social programming designed to help you learn more about yourself and others while furthering your sense of belonging and membership in the Chapman family.

Knowing that Panthers around the globe are also looking head, this website has been created to help you anticipate some of the opportunities to plan for when the new academic year starts.  Check back frequently, as opportunities and experiences will continue to be added and updated!

For more information about any of the efforts below, contact the Department of Student Engagement.
