Student Affairs uses a co-curricular, diverse and community-based relational leadership model as our central focus. By engaging in leadership opportunities, students will acquire and develop leadership skills they can use to provide socially responsible leadership within various professional and organizational settings.

Graduate assistantships provide graduate students in several DePaul graduate programs (college counseling and students affairs, women and gender studies, public health and others) with part-time, paid work experiences in their field of study, allowing them to expand and apply their discipline knowledge and skills under supervision.
Assistantships also allow Student Affairs professional staff to carry out special projects or other assignments that require the advanced discipline skills of graduate students.

The division has a long history of
inviting post-baccalaureate and graduate level students to intern within its
departments. Many students fulfill their requirements for their degrees by completing required hours with one of our departments. Students have come

Northwestern, Roosevelt and the University of Illinois at Chicago. If you are interested in
