Steans Center for Community-based Service Learning & Community Service Studies

The Steans Center develops mutually beneficial relationships with community organizations to engage DePaul students in educational opportunities grounded in Vincentian values of respect for human dignity and the quest for social justice. The work of the Steans Center is a direct reflection of DePaul's Catholic, Vincentian and urban mission.  The Center provides an academic bridge between the university and community that supports student learning, community development and faculty teaching and scholarship.
