Chapman Distinguished Lectures

The Chapman Lecture Series is made possible by the generous support of Dr. Richard A. Chapman '54 and Barbara Madden Chapman '54.

The fund was created in 2007 to provide support to bring visiting scientists in nanotechnology, to include Natural Sciences and Electrical Engineering.
