DePaul takes a strategic approach to comprehensive internationalization best described as "discover Chicago, discover the world". This approach is reflected in Goal 2, and its Objective 2a, of the current Vision 2018 strategic plan:

Leveraging the global diversity of Chicago, infuse international and comparative perspectives throughout teaching, research and service missions of the university.

The goal is to take students, faculty and staff through a developmental journey that will make them reflective, effective, responsible global citizens. This effort touches a number of areas: student and faculty mobility, international partnerships, recruitment of and service to international students, and internationalization of the curriculum.

To learn more about the myriad ways in which DePaul strives to reach this goal, you are invited to visit the site of Global Engagement.

Academic Affairs houses the Globalization Task Force​, as a strategic advisory body to the Provost on all matters related to global engagement.
