Casa Up Close: Dr. James L. Doti

Change is a Gift of Opportunity

Dr. James L. Doti has been known as Chapman University’s longest running and most memorable President. He is a champion of the liberal arts and sciences who transformed the once unexceptional college into a prestigious university. During his 25-year tenure as president, Chapman created 10 schools and colleges, doubled the graduation rate, quadrupled the student body, quintupled the faculty, and boosted assets to $1B. Dr. Doti is the founder of the Chapman University A. Gary Anderson Center for Economic Research, holds the Donald Bren Distinguished Chair in Business and Economics, and has currently returned to the Chapman faculty as Professor of Economics. He is also an author and marathon runner. As a distinguished speaker with Casa Romantica’s Casa Up Close series, Doti will talk about the changes that encouraged his Chapman community to prosper and how the pursuit of art, education, and culture can effect positive change in our community.
