Last summer, Student Affairs restructured the Office of Multicultural Student Success to create three, identity-specific student cultural and resource centers at DePaul. Announced in spring 2017, the changes were made in response to student, faculty and staff requests, and are aimed at better meeting the needs of under-represented and marginalized student groups at DePaul.
