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 Division of Mission and Ministry 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 Division of Mission and Ministry 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 Division of Mission and Ministry invites members of the university community or outside experts to address issues of Vincentian history, spirituality, or praxis.

DeAndreis-Rosati Memorial Archives Lectures

The annual DeAndreis-Rosati Memorial Archives Lecture highlights some aspect of the history and activities of the Congregation of the Mission (Vincentians) as researched, in whole or in part, by utilizing the archival resources provided by the DeAndreis-Rosati Memorial Archives in the Richardson Library of DePaul University.
