What Makes DePaul Different?

What Makes Depaul Unlike any other place?

A purposeful education — an education that opens both minds and doors for our students. An urban environment — an environment where students gain a diverse, global perspective, every day. And an ethos of Vincentian values — values that center on respect for others and an unwavering commitment to social good.

These three qualities define our brand.

At DePaul, students become urban educated and world ready.

This brand is what we stand for. As brand stewards, each of us tells the DePaul story every day: in how we talk about DePaul; in how we do our jobs, serving students and helping them succeed; and in how we represent DePaul in the larger community. We have a special story to tell. Let’s tell it, together.
