GRAND CHALLENGES INITIATIVE

The Grand Challenges Initiative is Chapman University’s groundbreaking new approach to training the next generation of leaders in science and engineering. The program provides foundational skills in critical thinking, problem-solving, communication, and teamwork for every undergraduate student entering the Schmid College of Science and Technology and the Dale E. and Sarah Ann Fowler School of Engineering.

Starting with their first day on campus, students work in small teams to imagine innovative solutions to a company or industry’s science, tech, or engineering problem. Student teams study challenges in fields ranging from cybersecurity to antibiotic resistance. Under the mentorship of our world-class faculty, they explore the nature of the challenge, learn sophisticated and interdisciplinary methods for problem-solving, and pursue ideas with the power to transform.

As a company partner, over the course of four semesters you will meet with the student team and their faculty mentor to discuss the project, receive regular written updates and an end-of-semester presentation of progress, and identify promising students for summer internships or employment after graduation.

To learn about how your organization and/or professionals can get involved with the Grand Challenges Initiative, contact Gregory R. Goldsmith, Ph.D., Director, Grand Challenges Initiative at [email protected] or (714) 516-5881.
