Registration for The Chapman Diversity Project’s spring meetings is available. The Chapman Diversity Project endeavors to bring students, staff, faculty, administrators, alumni, community members and trustees together for meaningful dialogue focused on developing strategic priorities and recommendations for diversity and inclusion at Chapman.
Seven Chapman Diversity Project advisory groups and one task force will be hosting lunch meetings this spring to allow new and current members the opportunity to participate in a larger conversation of ideas, concerns, and recommendations.
