DePaul University Division of Mission and Ministry > Programming & Services > Vincentian Heritage Tours > For Faculty & Staff
The Division of Mission and Ministry offers regular opportunities for members of the university community to deepen their understanding of the university’s patron, by participating in guided Vincentian Heritage study tours to locations in Paris and throughout France associated with the life and works of St. Vincent de Paul. The Vincentian Heritage Tours (VHT) have long been a vital part of developing and deepening the DePaul community's understanding and engagement with its mission. Participants return with a renewed appreciation and passion for our collective Vincentian values and how they can connect with our daily professional lives and work.
Participation in the summer tours is open, on a competitive basis, to all faculty and staff who have demonstrated interest in the Vincentian heritage, mission and values of the university. The trip’s goal is to encourage the deepening of Vincentian leadership among faculty and staff members. Travel is not considered part of the employee’s vacation time. The trip is funded by a way split between the participant, the participant’s department, and the Division of Mission and Ministry.
