DePaul University Division of Student Affairs > About > Collaboration


Collaboration is an essential element of the Division of Student Affairs. Developing and implementing effective programs and supporting student success requires the work of many. Collaboration occurs across the division and is structured according to immediacy, student need, impact and relation to long-term and short-term university and divisional goals. There are numerous examples of effective partnerships, including the New Student Programming Planning Committee, the Student Welfare Task Force and the Campus SaVE Act Task Force.  Some of our larger collaborations are listed below:
  • New Student and Family Engagement works with the Liberal Studies Program to offer the First Year Program's Discover and Explore Chicago.  Staff in New Student and Family Engagement hire and train staff professionals and student Chicago Quarter Mentors.
  • In partnership with Academic Affairs, the Dean of Students Office reviews the  late withdrawals process for personal and medical issues.
