Seeds of the Mission


The Seeds of the Mission Campaign invites our DePaul community to witness, uphold and celebrate DePaul's mission-in-action as a tool for revising the University mission statement. It seeks to embrace a  movement for justice and to deepen our commitment of defending the inherent dignity of every person. A seed is a symbol of hope. Rooted in the Vincentian practice of valuing experience, the Seeds of the Mission Campaign will gather stories of students, faculty, staff, alumni and community partners living the DePaul Mission. 

The DePaul mission can never be separated from the needs of the world, and we expect that the Seeds of the Mission campaign will lift up stories of mission-in-action through which people make an impact at DePaul, in our city, our nation, and our world. We recognize and celebrate the many diverse, creative and deeply rooted seeds already answering the Vincentian question “What Must Be Done?" Listening to and amplifying seeds of the mission stories helps us understand who we have been and who we are so that we may transform into who we are called to be in the 21st century.
