Students working on projects together 

Irwin W. Steans Center

Welcome to The Steans Center

The Steans Center, Egan Office, and the ABCD Institute stand firmly against police violence targeting Black Lives, policies that promote systemic racism, and institutions that condone white supremacy.  We are committed to working toward, and reflecting upon, change in solidarity with those who struggle in our communities for freedom, justice, and equality.

Center Staff Innovate to Engage Communities

Spring Quarter 2020 was like no other in the two-decade history of the Steans Center.  Practically overnight, Center staff were faced with addressing the question of how the university can take action to engage communities while educating students remotely. 


Community Engagement and COVID-19

 COVID-19 disrupted our student and faculty community engagement work, as DePaul faculty and Steans Center staff operate remotely and students are limited in their ability to engage off campus. If you have any questions, please send us an email to and a member of our staff will get back to you. To read more about precautions taken by DePaul to prevent the spread of COVID-19 please see:
