College of Science and Health to celebrate 10-year anniversary

CSH 10 years

This year, DePaul University's College of Science and Health will celebrate its 10-year anniversary. To mark this milestone anniversary, CSH is hosting a series of engaging activities and events around the theme, “A decade fostering leaders in science and health to positively impact the world."

The college will kick off its series of anniversary events with a symposium on March 10. All are welcome to RSVP for the event titled, “What Must be Done? Learning from the COVID-19 Pandemic to Strengthen our Future."

“This year's celebration will yield experiences that resonate with the lessons learned during the COVID-19 pandemic through displays of discoveries and innovations inherent in the college," says Stephanie Dance-Barnes, dean of the College of Science and Health. “The college demonstrated its ability to respond to the current moment as it always has, by developing academic programs and student support systems to address immediate, pressing needs."

CSH was established in 2011 with the purpose of elevating science and health teaching, strengthening research opportunities for faculty and students, and enhancing the natural collaborations between science and health faculty, staff and students. Through its academic programs, teaching and the scholarly work of its faculty and students, the CSH embodies and demonstrates Vincentian values.

Over the past ten years, CSH has responded to its charge by launching more than 15 new bachelors, masters and doctoral degree programs to expand access to high quality undergraduate and graduate science and health education for students from diverse backgrounds. The college engages students through active participation in research, clinics, field studies, internships and other opportunities that further prepare students for graduate studies, successful careers and lifelong learning.

Please join the CSH in “Celebrating 10 Years of Discovery and Innovation." Though registration for each event is required, admission is free and open to the public. More information about the CSH 10th Anniversary events will be made available on the college's website.
