What makes DePaul different?
is unlike any other university. We have
an outstanding academic reputation supported by strong rankings and passionate
faculty, a vibrant link to Chicago that we leverage throughout the academic
experience, and responsible values infused into all we do. We call these core components our ‘Education, Environment and Ethos.’ They define who
we are, and they are the pillars of our story. We're beginning a conversation here where we'll share some of our best stories. *If you have one to share, you can submit it via the link on the right sidebar.
DePaul’s education is purposeful, practical and infused with
real-world and global perspectives. Here are some of our stories:
