The Orange County Business Journal cover story about President Doti (

Jim Doti, Chapman University president and member of the Brandman University Board of Regents, was named the 2015 Business Person of the Year by the Orange County Business Journal. In the cover story this week, writer Paul Hughes notes that Doti is the longest-serving president at Chapman, “capping a 25-year tenure that has remade a small liberal arts college into a focused university with a much more substantial profile in Orange County, Southern California and the nation.”

In December, Doti was also named one of the most influential people in Orange County by the Orange County Register. The article noted that “under Doti’s leadership, Chapman has expanded both physically and by reputation. His fundraising helped the private university build six new colleges, including the Dodge College of Film and Media Arts and the county’s first School of Pharmacy. This year, Doti oversaw the accelerated construction for the Hilbert Museum of California Art, which will open in February, and the Musco Center for the Arts, which will open in March with a performance by opera superstar Plácido Domingo. He also oversaw plans, which this year kicked into high gear, for a new Center for Science and Technology.”
