Lecture Programs

One of the strengths of the university is our dedication to exploring the intellectual underpinnings of our mission and values. To this end, the Office of Mission and Values sponsors a series of lecture programs in which we invite a wide variety of noted experts to share the research, questions, conclusions and insights of their research to an academic community which seeks to engage the great questions of our time from DePaul’s distinctive institutional perspective. In addition to lectures, the Office of Mission and Values also sponsors other educational events and programs designed to educate and enrich the university community and our external constituencies through reflection upon the historical, spiritual, and contemporary implications of our Vincentian and Catholic identity.

Vincentian Lectures

The St. Vincent de Paul, St. Louise de Marillac, or Blessed Frederic Ozanam lectures are not offered regularly, but rather on an occasional basis when unique opportunities present themselves to enhance the numerous lectures offered on a regular basis across the university over the academic year. The Office of Mission and Values invites members of the university community or outside experts to address issues of Vincentian history, spirituality, or praxis.

DeAndreis-Rosati Memorial Archives Lectures

The DeAndreis-Rosati Memorial Archives (DRMA) are the archives of the Midwest Province of the Congregation of the Mission. Since 2001, these archives have been located at DePaul University. This quarterly lecture series, co-sponsored by the archives, the Vincentian Studies Institute of the United States, the Archives and Special Collections Department of the Richardson Library, and the Office of Mission and Values, presents authors and researchers who have used the DRMA archives, or who have written scholarly studies on topics of Vincentian history.
