This December, Chapman University welcomed Collette Creppell as the new vice president of campus planning and design. The creation of this new vice presidency marks a change in Chapman’s approach to campus planning. Creppell will focus on the design of major projects and, with vice president of community relations Jack Raubolt, entitlement matters including zoning, design and permitting issues.

“Community Relations looks forward to working with Vice President Creppell as we all strive for a safe community for our students and neighbors,” said Raubolt. “She shares in our mission of finding
common ground with our neighbors.”

As a new resident of the City of Orange, Creppell will have first-hand experience understanding the close connections between the campus and community. You can expect to see Creppell at
local venues and events, and leading the effort to make campus improvements while minimizing disruptions for our neighbors.

“I am honored and excited to join the Chapman family,” Creppell said, “and to begin to engage in the
wonderful historic setting of Old Towne Orange.”Collette Creppel
