President Struppa


I cannot express how proud I am of everything you have accomplished in your time at Chapman University, and especially for how you have risen to the challenges of this last semester. I have always believed in Chapman students; you are remarkable and resilient, and now I am even more sure that Panthers are prepared to take on whatever the future holds.

As soon as it is safe, we will invite you back to campus to celebrate with you in-person for the Commencement ceremony that all our graduate and undergraduate degree students richly deserve. Until then, I hope you will join us for this special event in your honor, so that we have a chance to mark the end of this year and celebrate together.

President Daniele C. Struppa, Ph.D.
