DePaul Parent Connection

​​​​​​​The DePaul Parent Connection provides opportunities for DePaul faculty and staff to network, learn, socialize, and mentor one another through engagement and resource building.  We serve as an institutional advisory group on issues related to parenting and we advocate for and address the needs of parents among DePaul employees.

In February 2021, we conducted a survey of DePaul employees who are parents or caregivers.  A report of our findings is available to DePaul faculty and staff.  Contact us for a copy.

A list of resources for parents and caregivers is available here​.

Each year we host a Take Your Child to Work event on the third Thursday in April, aligning with the national holiday.  We are assessing the current situation due to Covid-19 to determine if the event will be held for 2022.

  • Paty Arreola​
  • Nadia Coloma
  • Nancy Hashimoto, Co-Chair
  • Maria Hench

  • Elisa Trujillo, Co-Chair
