This has been an exceptional and productive year for the Chapman University Alumni Association Board of Directors. Through their hard work and dedication, this group of alumni has accomplished an incredible amount over the past year: record alumni attendance at campus events, increased alumni presence and representation across campus and several new organized groups for alumni to get more involved in the life of the university, to name just a few examples.
