Office of Institutional Diversity & Equity > Education > Programming > Cultural Programming
The Office of Institutional Diversity and Equity is committed to offering a variety of cultural programming events throughout the year. We work in partnership with departments, units, organizations, and ERG's throughout the university on events designed to celebrate our differences. These events are planned to increase diversity awareness and understanding among our DePaul community.
The Diversity Signature Series (DSS) highlights prominent national heritage month celebrations and other cultural events of the university's centers, institutes, and academic departments. Through this collaboration, OIDE creates an annual diversity calendar of sponsored programs that we help to promote throughout the academic year.
On October 7, 2020, we celebrated Hispanic Heritage month, as we welcomed lifelong civil rights activist, Ms. Dolores Huerta at DePaul's annual Dolores Huerta celebration. We are pleased to provide the recording of Ms. Huerta’s important message to the DePaul community.
Campus Connect credentials are required to view the keynote speech.
On January 19, 2021, we celebrated Black History month, as we welcomed one of the "Little Rock Nine" and a civil rights advocate, Mr. Ernest Green at DePaul's annual Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. celebration. We are pleased to provide the recording of this celebration.
