Connection to DePaul Mission

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.

DeSACNAS is not only an organization to help further the scientific careers for minorities pursing a degree in the STEM field. DeSACNAS values each and every member. We value culture, values, ideas, and dreams. All are important factors to keep in mind when linking our mission back to the DePaul mission. We strive not only to help make a better and promising future for all our students, and we know that we must help engage all students to access their past experiences, utilize their present knowledge and experience to help mold and shape their promising futures! With the help and values from the DePaul mission, I know DeSACNAS is going to continue to strive and flourish as a DePaul student organization.
