Mission Statement:

The Ferrucci Institute for Italian Experience and Research strives to inspire and advance a wide disciplinary spectrum of teaching and research interfacing Italy’s universal educational and intellectual potential, both in its peninsular and diasporic contexts.

Bridge Art“The bridge of the Ferrucci Institute symbolizes the link between Chapman and Italy, between fields of knowledge, and between generations. Furthermore, it evokes the journey into the unknown that we must undertake for higher learning to occur and for discovering what connects us across divides.”

–Dr. Federico Pacchioni

The Ferrucci Institute aligns with Chapman University’s mission: “to provide personalized education of distinction that leads to inquiring, ethical and productive lives as global citizens.”
