At DePaul University, you’ll find innovative, academically challenging programs that combine theory and hands-on learn- ing to prepare you for your career and your life. Located in the heart of Chicago, we offer you unparalleled access to internships and learning opportunities with many of the nation’s top corpo- rations and organizations as well as a rich array of cultural events and institutions.


That commitment to diversity ensures that you’ll hear a wide range of viewpoints in the classroom. In the 2008 National Survey of Student Engagement, nearly three-quarters of DePaul seniors said the university contributed to their personal develop- ment in understanding people of diverse backgrounds, compared to only 55 percent of seniors at other urban institutions. Nearly two-thirds of DePaul seniors reported that the university empha- sizes contact among students from different economic, social, racial or ethnic backgrounds, compared to less than half of the seniors at the other urban universities. Such experiences prepare you to succeed in today’s multicultural, global workplace. At DePaul, you’ll find that our faculty members are here because their first love is teaching. Among the nation’s ten largest private universities, DePaul is the only one with a primary emphasis on teaching and learning—that’s why 98 percent of our classes are taught by faculty members. All full-time faculty members teach and those who teach graduate students also teach undergraduates, giving you access to the professors behind our national rankings.


As the nation’s largest Catholic university, DePaul enrolls more than 24,000 students in over 250 undergraduate and grad- uate degree programs. Despite our size, 89 percent of under- graduate classes have fewer than 40 students, ensuring you the personal attention you deserve.


Among our many accomplishments, DePaul is recognized as a national leader in enrolling—and graduating—students of color. In fact, DePaul is consistently ranked among the top 100 universities that award degrees to students of color by Diverse Issues in Higher Education. And, the Princeton Review ranked DePaul first in the nation in the “Diverse Student Population” category in 2007.


Our multifaceted student body stems from the university’s


mission. Founded in 1898 to serve students who would other- wise be denied a college education, DePaul enrolls students from a wide range of backgrounds, paying particular attention to first-generation college students and those from underrepre- sented groups.


Our focus on the importance of teaching does not prevent our faculty members from conducting world-class research. In fact, the faculty of DePaul’s doctoral programs was recognized as the most productive and distinguished in the nation among uni- versities with fewer than 15 doctoral programs in 2006, accord- ing to the Faculty Scholarly Productivity Index. What’s signifi- cant is that our professors routinely include undergraduates in their research and scholarship, giving you rare experiences that bolster your credentials.
