“Chapman University is driven by discovery and our passion for serving communities, both locally and globally. Our Rinker campus in Irvine is home to Chapman’s Crean College of Behavioral and Health Sciences and our School of Pharmacy, where breakthroughs in HIV prevention, precision medicine, ocular research, and drug authorization happen every day. We also have community members participate in support programs for stroke, aphasia, a neuro-deficit clinic for long COVID, and more,” said Chapman University President Daniele C. Struppa, Ph.D. “Our work with community partners like the Greater Irvine Chamber of Commerce is essential to our commitment to Irvine and Chapman’s continued upward trajectory as a research and community-supporting organization.”

Founded in 1861, Chapman University is a nationally ranked private university. Chapman is categorized by the Carnegie Classification as an R2 “high research activity” institution and offers personalized education to more than 10,000 undergraduate and graduate students. The campus has produced a Rhodes Scholar, been named a top producer of Fulbright Scholars, and hosts a chapter of Phi Beta Kappa, the nation’s oldest and most prestigious honor society. Based in the city of Orange, Chapman also includes the Harry and Diane Rinker Health Science Campus in Irvine. In 2019, the university opened its 11th college, Fowler School of Engineering, in its newest facility, Keck Center for Science and Engineering.
