Office of Institutional Diversity & Equity > Education > Programming


The Office of Institutional Diversity and Equity sponsors a variety of cultural programming events via our internal grant process. Since inception, OIDE's cultural programming has evolved to become a reliable university resource for sustaining culturally-based activities and an institutionalized avenue to obtain supplementary funding for diversity programming. We work in partnership with departments, units and organizations throughout the university to help ensure and enhance events designed to celebrate our differences and increase diversity awareness and understanding. This is one of the many ways in which DePaul shows its commitment to the many cultures that exist within our community.

Funded Initiatives

The establishment of the President's Signature Series has been an ever-evolving success. This series highlights, promotes and sponsors cultural programs and events of our centers, institutes, academic departments and internal organizations. As a result of this collaboration, we create an annual diversity calendar of prestigious heritage month celebrations and more.

OIDE is also responsible for coordinating the University Diversity Series. Intended to provide broad-spectrum diversity funding category to the university community at large, the University Diversity Series contains a vast array of quality programming and diversity projects.

In addition, OIDE funds diverse student graduation ceremonies to include:
  • African American Graduation Banquet
  • Latino Graduation Banquet
  • African American Law Association Graduation Banquet
  • Asian-Pacific American Law Association Graduation Banquet
  • Latino Law Association Graduation Banquet
