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.

DePaul's Vincentian mission seeks justice for all, and works to partner with people in the urban environment to encourage development and learning. With Global Brigades, we see the trips and overall movement that students are able to take a part of as going hand in hand with the mission to learn from other cultures, while empowering them to seek justice for themselves, and giving them resources and support to do that.
