Esteban was entrusted with DePaul’s mission statement during a formal ceremony where he was officially inaugurated as the university’s 12th president. DePaul’s transition of leadership was celebrated in Chicago’s Navy Pier Grand Ballroom and was attended by more than 1,000 religious leaders, city officials, civic and community leaders , and members of the DePaul community.

Esteban, who has been at DePaul since July 1, is the first lay president at the nation’s largest Catholic university. DePaul was founded in Chicago in 1898 by the Congregation of the Mission (Vincentians), a Roman Catholic religious community dedicated to following the ideals of St. Vincent de Paul, the 17th century priest for whom the university is named.
