Chicago Connections

DePaul students looking at a computer screen while conducting research.

For over a century, DePaul has called Chicago home. Our faculty and students' academic and professional connections are deeply interwoven into the City, it's diverse neighborhoods, and surrounding metropolitan areas. As an academic community, DePaul works with local organizations and institutions to connect with Chicago to promote scholarship that strengthens the fabric of community life while advancing the research, service and education mission of the University. We support a collaborative approach to such activities that includes community members or organizations, as applicable, as part of both design and decision-making processes.
