In the last three weeks, our university community has witnessed an alarming increase in safety incidents on our Lincoln Park and Loop campuses. We want you to know how much we share your concern and will not tolerate these crimes that continue to occur on campus. We are actively pressing the mayor and elected officials for responses to help us in this effort so that we can get immediate support.
These changes are necessary, and we ask for your understanding and cooperation as we work together on their implementation. We will communicate with you actively and welcome your input as we review additional improvements. If you have questions or suggestions related to campus safety, please contact us at
Again, please know we are actively engaging with the mayor’s office and our aldermen to impress upon them how much these recent crimes are affecting the wellbeing of our students, their families, and our overall university.
Our students chose DePaul so that they could have access to an outstanding education that will empower them to change the world. We will continue to do everything in our power to keep our students safe and help them succeed academically, professionally, and personally.
