Goal One of the university’s strategic plan: “Grounded in Mission. The plan for DePaul 2024” calls for the university to “deepen our commitment to DePaul’s Catholic, Vincentian, and urban mission.” This goal will be accomplished as we continue to encourage, empower and equip faculty and staff to play an active role in integrating this mission into their day-to-day life and work with students and colleagues. Whether in or out of the classroom, our success depends on faculty and staff becoming ambassadors and living examples of this mission for our students, helping to deepen a DePaul culture oriented towards building a more just and equitable human society through education, service and advocacy for justice.
The Division of Mission and Ministry hosts a number of programs and opportunities oriented towards fostering the mission engagement of faculty and staff, particularly through our Faculty and Staff Engagement team. We also seek to collaborate with faculty and staff in their own efforts to deepen our institutional commitment to our mission and identity. Faculty and staff are invited to participate in any of the programs listed on the left menu or to contact our office directly for more information on how to get involved or to share suggestions or ideas.
If you are looking to fund a grant project or event that directly enhances the identity of DePaul University as a Catholic, Vincentian, and urban university with special attention to the Catholic and Vincentian aspects of this identity, please visit our Vincentian Endowment Fund page.
