The college again extended higher educational access when it began offering classes to military personnel at El Toro Marine Base.In 1965, Chapman took undergraduate education to the high seas when it began running World Campus Afloat, the program that would eventually become Semester at Sea, a tradition that continues at Chapman through our world-wide study abroad programs.Since our founding, Chapman has grown into a highly regarded university that attracts high-achieving undergraduate and graduate students from all over the United States, and more than 60 nations around the world.Our mission statement: To provide personalized education of distinction that leads to inquiring, ethical and productive lives as global citizens.
