Approved Research Personnel

The Office of Research and academic deans have worked to approve certain research activities as outlined in the Research Continuity plan during COVID-19. Any faculty, students and staff who are already approved will need to get weekly COVID-19 testing and participate in the existing COVID-19 daily screening survey prior to coming to campus. Any additional personnel to approved faculty Site Specific Plans should be made using the Limited Campus Access form which will be routed to the appropriate unit approver and the Vice President for Research.

Observing Campus Guidelines

Whether on our campus, in the residence halls, or in the community nearby, it is of great importance that everyone observes the guidelines and behaviors that will help us slow the spread of COVID-19. Chapman students, faculty, and staff on and off the campuses must make every effort to follow established protocols and processes. Doing so is a fundamental commitment to our collective health and will also help us to remain together at Chapman.
