Community Outreach offers specialized services that address unique needs of first generation college, low income, and minority students.

Campus Visits

Community Outreach staff works alongside DePaul Undergraduate Admissions to host special group visits on the Lincoln Park campus. We work with elementary school counselors, middle and high school college coaches, and nonprofit organizations to widen college access for traditionally under-represented groups.
