Robert L. Manuel began his term as DePaul University’s 13th president on Aug. 1, 2022. Following an extensive national search and unanimous election, DePaul’s Board of Trustees announced his appointment on May 10, 2022.
In his first year, Rob invited every member of the DePaul community to transform DePaul University into THE national model in higher education. In the weeks that followed, he engaged in community conversations to create a roadmap to establish interdisciplinary programs and translational research institutes that prepare students to solve issues related to poverty, environmental sustainability, and artificial intelligence.
