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.

All programs and events we implement during the year support our mission of "Lifting as We Climb". Through this motto we seek to nurture the relationship between minority students, faculty, and alumni throughout the School of Business. We promote scholastic excellence by co-sponsoring study sessions, civil leadership by participating in volunteer activities as a group, professional growth by hosting networking events and office visits, camaraderie by organizing social outings. These programs help forge lifelong bonds between our members and alumni.


What is your organization's purpose/mission?

The purpose of our organization is to help students transition into professionals and to serve as a network for minority business students.
