Faculty are essential to research at DePaul; they are passionate artists, scholars, scientists, leaders, mentors and innovators. Here, we acknowledge the awards, recognitions and distinctions of some of our most distinguished faculty members—respected leaders and innovators within our campus community and in their disciplines. Their work, with a relentless focus on the greater good, invigorates intellectual inquiry, fuels discovery, and strengthens the teaching and learning environment of the University.
NSF Career Awards are the National Science Foundation's most prestigious awards in support of early-career faculty who have the potential to serve as academic role models in research and education and to lead advances in the mission of their department or organization. Activities pursued by early-career faculty should build a firm foundation for a lifetime of leadership in integrating education and research.

In support of the University’s belief that the quest for knowledge is the foundation upon which the idea of a university rests, and the purpose that unites both teacher and student, the
University Research Council (URC) makes annual DePaul University Spirit of Inquiry Awards. The Awards honor specific research, scholarly or creative achievements that exhibit commitment to that spirit of creative inquiry, which we endeavor to inspire in our students.
The Spirit of DePaul Award was instituted during DePaul's Centennial celebration to highlight institutional Vincentian Values and their relation to the achievement of DePaul's mission. The award also seeks to personally honor and recognize diverse members of the DePaul Community for their leadership and service in the spirit of Saint Vincent de Paul.
