Chapman Support Services for Students

This post was updated on

Chapman University remains committed to the philosophy that we are a community who cares about all its members, and we are all encouraged to identify students who may be in need of additional support or services.  

If a student is experiencing difficulties, community members – whether faculty, staff or neighbors – are encouraged to refer the student to meet with a member of the Dean of Students Office or submit a report to the Student Concerns Intervention Team (SCIT) using the online SCIT Report form. The recently launched Chapman Health & Wellness website is another great student resource which offers a comprehensive guide to existing support services.

Listed below is the contact information for the Dean of Students Office and additional resources available to Chapman students. For more information, including behaviors of concern to look for in students, read more about the SCIT.
