Welcome Parents!

Chapman University’s approach to returning to campus centers around a single goal: To protect the health and well-being of all members of our community.

We know that as family members your utmost concern is for your student’s health and safety. We are committed to ensuring their welfare while at Chapman. Our entire campus community will be working to meet that goal with the understanding that we all have a role in keeping ourselves and others safe.

The Office of Parent Engagement is a resource to help you partner with Chapman in supporting each step of your student’s journey as they transition through the different stages at the university. For questions, please contact or (714) 997-6558.
