Center for Science and Technology

To further distinguish itself as a preeminent institution of higher education by advancing its science programs, Chapman University is investing in the construction of a new, 140,000 square-foot Center for Science and Technology.

In the same way that building Marion Knott Studios propelled Dodge College of Film and Media Arts almost immediately to its place among the top film schools in the nation, the Center for Science and Technology will significantly enhance every activity of Chapman's science students and faculty members, elevating the University to a new class of research institution.
