An enduring legacy

Designed by O'Neil Ford, the Chapman Center provides cross-disciplinary collaboration bridges for undergraduate and graduate work in the social sciences, business, and applied technology.

Chapman has hosted six decades of high-level research and study, dating back to 1964. And after undergoing a $33 million renovation in 2022-23, its re-opening this fall represents one of the final brush strokes in the campus master plan’s bold re-envisioning of Trinity’s future, which will be marked with a celebration worthy of Chapman’s enduring legacy.

About the Building

The Chapman Center renovation is possible through the support of the many generous Trinity alumni and friends who supported Chapman Center both in its original opening in 1964 and in its significant renovation and rededication in 2023.
