Student Involvement Ambassadors if they have any concerns or would like clarification about a group's registration status for the academic year.
So whether you are involved in one service organization, the DePaul Activities Board, Student Government, among others you can put our own personal spin on our DePaul experience.
Yes, but there is a university process for getting a speaker approved to appear on campus.
First note that if the speaker will only be speaking to members of your student organization, or will be speaking at an off-campus location, the speaker does not have to be reviewed and approved by the university.
If other members of the DePaul and/or Chicago community will be invited to the event, and the event is being held on campus, the university must review and approve the requested speaker. A Speaker Review Committee consisting of two faculty, two staff and two student members conducts the review, keeping in mind a number of considerations, and then makes a recommendation to the director of Student Involvement. Student organizations can log into DeHUB for more information for the Speaker Review Procedure.
DePaul is committed to fostering an educational community that welcomes free and open discourse. We believe that speakers provide an opportunity for students to hear and discuss opposing viewpoints on a wide range of topics. As such, DePaul encourages student organizations to plan, promote and engage in thoughtful, respectful and challenging dialogue, including through guest speakers.
