​The Welcome Back Celebration is a gathering to welcome faculty & staff back to campus and kick-off the start of the 2022-2023 academic year. Faculty and staff are invited to an afternoon of music, fun, games and food hosted in Lincoln Park on the Quad.

​The celebration will be held on Thursday, September 1 immediately after Convocation from noon to 3 p.m.  This event is open to DePaul faculty and staff only and all participants must provide a valid ID to attend.

​Offices that support students or vital campus services should make plans for staffing during the event. Vice presidents, deans and directors will determine which departments must remain open and coordinate hours and staffing as necessary.  

University Marketing and Communications is responsible for coordinating the Welcome Back Celebration. If you have questions about the Welcome Back Celebration or need to register, email
