Service Speaks is an annual conference that has highlighted the service learning and community engagement work of DePaul students and community partners since 2008. 

Each academic year, over 200 courses and programs send students into the community to lift up the assets of our community partners through community-based service learning (CbSL) and project-based classes, a community-based scholarship program, community internships and community-based research. These connections result in beneficial outcomes for the community organization and provide transformational experiences for our students. 

On Friday, May 20, 2022, the conference was in person at the Lincoln Park Student Center from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM. The conference was​ followed by a keynote event featuring Mikki Kendall, DePaul alumna and author of Hood Feminism. To view a recording of the conference:
