From Dr. Esteban:

At DePaul University, our Catholic, Vincentian and urban mission calls on us to be servant leaders who make the world a better place. For 125 years, we have done so by delivering an outstanding education to a diverse community of learners who graduate prepared to serve a changing world. As we envision the next 125 years, we will strive to make DePaul unequaled among urban universities, ensuring the continued success of our students. It is an honor to be part of our distinguished university’s history.
