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.

Part of the mission of DePaul is to educate the community. Math Club creates a friendly and informal environment in which students and faculty who are share common interests in anything related to mathematics can discuss and exchange ideas. This is hugely important for a topic like mathematics because often times it is hard to find people to discuss mathematics with outside of class and outside of just talking about homework problems. Math club broadens people's horizons and conceptions of what mathematics is, and what it means to study and "do" mathematics. Finally on a fundamental level math club creates a common meeting place for the community of mathematically inclined members of the DePaul community, and the existence of the meeting place helps strengthen the ties and encourage the spirit of the mathematics community at DePaul.
