Student Research

A group of DePaul University students gathered  around their computers doing research.

Scholarship and creative activity permeate DePaul University— whether it is in the library, the laboratory, the studio, or in the community. At DePaul, both undergraduate and graduate students engage in research to pursue knowledge, enhance learning and inquiry, and refine career goals. Students are exposed to research activity at the University’s ten schools through shared faculty-mentor expertise, facilities, and resources. In addition to guidance provided here, when engaging in research, we encourage you to seek individual department guidance as well.
