Meet DePaul's 13th President

Since he took office in August 2022, President Robert L. Manuel challenged the DePaul community to believe that our university could be transformed into a national model in higher education. He immediately began engaging in hundreds of conversations with students, faculty, staff, alumni, trustees, parents, and retirees, among other stakeholders, to design DePaul’s future. The resulting product, Designing DePaul, will serve as a guidepost for leading our university forward.
