“We could not be more proud of our graduates this year,” says Chapman President Daniele C. Struppa. “They have shown they are capable of adapting to the most challenging circumstances and completed this semester, despite all the difficulties caused by the ongoing pandemic. We know every Chapman graduate is capable of amazing things. This class has been put to the test, and proven it.”

Though a traditional, in-person Commencement ceremony will  be rescheduled, all graduating students, faculty and staff have been invited to attend a special, virtual event in their honor, on the date Commencement would originally have taken place. President Struppa, Provost Glenn M.Pfeiffer, Dean Jerry M. Price and other guest speakers will be on hand to offer words of congratulations and good luck as the graduates mark this milestone in their academic journeys. 

All graduating students, faculty, staff, loved ones, friends, alumni and members of the Chapman Family are welcome to attend this virtual celebration, which can be viewed on Facebook, YouTube and Chapman’s Virtual Celebration Hub
