The Student Scholar Symposium celebrates the breadth and depth of scholarly research and creative exploration by Chapman University students.

Join us May 1st and 2nd to experience a showcase of projects from diverse academic and creative disciplines. Interact with our student researchers and their innovative exhibits, reflecting the rigorous inquiry happening across the campus.

This Semiannual Celebration highlights the breadth and depth of scholarly research and creative activity conducted by Chapman undergraduate and graduate students. The Student Scholar Symposium is a truly exciting day to learn about, explore and appreciate the efforts that students and faculty have put into a wide variety of research and creative activity projects across campus.

This year we are excited to announce the expansion of the symposium with oral presentations and Visual Art Presentations, allowing more opportunities for students to showcase their scholarly work.
