The DePaul Red Cross Club will learn, practice and exemplify humanitarian values through mission-related service projects.
How does your organization live out the mission of DePaul?
This mission statement embodies the principal purposes of DePaul University. As such it is the nexus between past, present and future; the criterion against which plans are formulated and major decisions made; the bond which unites faculty, students, staff, alumni, and trustees as an academic community. As a university, DePaul pursues the preservation, enrichment, and transmission of knowledge and culture across a broad scope of academic disciplines. It treasures its deep roots in the wisdom nourished in Catholic universities from medieval times. The principal distinguishing marks of the university are its Catholic, Vincentian, and urban character.
The pursuit of enrichment and transmission of knowledge is one of the missions of DePaul, and this club does just that. This club will offer opportunities for students to gain knowledge in areas such as CPR training, first aid, disaster preparedness and many more. The mission of the American Red Cross is to prevent and alleviate human suffering through humanitarian service, and this club strives to help them with this Vincentian service.
