In January, President Robert L. Manuel announced a set of immediate actions to address questions of bias and equity at DePaul University. One of these actions was to engage a working group on topics of religious intolerance on our campus.

The working group now invites students to participate in a listening session that is designed to explore the challenges and opportunities on our religiously diverse campus on Tuesday, April 11. This session will begin at 5:30 p.m. in Room 325 of the Lincoln Park Student Center. Register online to take part in the session.

Such listening sessions provide a way for university administrators to learn more about faculty/staff experiences, as well as to explore the ways DePaul can continue to support the community in living out their religious/ spiritual life and beliefs. Separate sessions have been arranged for faculty and staff and student groups.

The working group is led by Fr. Memo Campuzano, C.M., vice president for the Division of Mission and Ministry; Elizabeth Ortiz, vice president for the Office of Institutional Diversity and Equity; and Gene Zdziarski, vice president for Student Affairs.
