Mission and Past Year Recaps

DePaul SWAP is an initiative that aims to educate students on the ways in which upcycling their items can help reduce waste while also providing materials for others and helping sustain a Vincentian mission here at DePaul. This initiative began in 2009 and raises money for the Office of Mission and Values' Vincentian Assistance Fund, which goes to directly help students in emergent need.

Volunteer Opportunities

Each year we look for individuals who can volunteer time during finals week to gather and sort items that are received. We also look for student, faculty and staff volunteers to work the actual event. This volunteering is eligible for most fraternity/sorority, school or work service hours. Watch for details posted in residence halls and on social media.

For additional information, contact Housing Services at housing@depaul.edu or (773) 325-7196.
