Chatham University

Reaching the future faster

At Chatham, we know that a focus on innovation and research is our future. But that's not stopping us from getting started today. Each day, we're thinking of - and integrating - academic opportunities that will give Chatham students an advantage in the world. Innovative approaches that allow students to achieve more during their time at Chatham and be set up for success after. Whether it's through our accelerated graduate programs, self-designed majors, senior tutorial projects, diverse work-study opportunities, or the Prior Learning Assessment (PLA) program, Chatham's unique offerings allow students to acquire their education on their own terms, following their own passions, and within their own means.

Complimenting our academic innovation is the impact Chatham's students and faculty are making in their research activities. At our new Eden Hall Campus, research won't just be conducted; it'll be lived, experienced, and integrated into our daily activities, constantly pushing our knowledge bases and opening up new avenues for innovation. Innovation and research are more than Chatham's future; it's our right now.
