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 Care Team, the Sexual and Relationship Violence 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.
  • The marketing communication specialist works closely with the University Marketing and Communications to develop and share Student Affairs content for the university's faculty/staff newsletter, Newsline, including a monthly student profile. ​
  • The assessment and effectiveness specialist works closely with DePaul's Center for Teaching and Learning, facilitating workshops as part of the Assessment Certificate Program and by sitting on a university-wide co-curricular assessment committee.
  • The Office of Student Involvement has worked closely with a number of university departments since 2016, including Athletics, the President's office and Financial Affairs, to launch and support large events, such as Wintrust Welcome, the President's Tree Lighting Ceremony and Ugly Sweater Party and DePaul's Esports program, tournaments and presence at Chicago's C2E2.
