Virtual Programming & Resources

» Spring 2020 Virtual Programming & Resources


Hello Panthers!  
 

As we all join our fellow global citizens in navigating the current situation, the focus on health and wellness is paramount. The social distancing we have been asked to practice is designed to be a helpful measure. We also recognize it can come with challengesas the connections we have with others inevitably change.   

Knowing that Panthers around the globe are focusing on keeping family, friends, and communities safe, this website has been created to help you maintain connections and engagement with others. Check back frequently, as online engagement opportunities will continue to be added!  

Wherever you may be, please know that Chapman is committed to helping you navigate the transition to, and use of, this interim online environment – including staying as active and engaged as possible!
