THE CAMPAIGN FOR DEPAUL UNIVERSITY
The Many Dreams, One Mission Campaign for DePaul University
is an historic initiative undertaken in support of one of America’s great universities. It will ensure that DePaul continues to deliver on our founding promise: an excellent education for any talented student who seeks it.
The Campaign supports dreams. Students come to DePaul from across the country and around the world. Their dreams are many and varied, individual to each, as our students come from all stations in life. Many are the first in their family to attend college. The realization of their dreams gives rise to new dreams and strong communities.
The Campaign supports DePaul’s mission, a mission which blends opportunity and excellence, inquiry and discovery, service to the individual and benefit to the larger community. It is manifested in the work that goes on here every day, in libraries, classrooms, laboratories, practice rooms and on the stage in hours of solitude and moments of connection.
At DePaul, students, faculty, staff, alumni and supporters have the opportunity to build on and extend the academic excellence that has come before and to aspire to even greater heights.
The Campaign seeks to raise $300 million by 2014 to:
- Increase student financial assistance
- Invest in areas of academic excellence university wide
- Help recruit and retain top faculty
- Develop programs and campus facilities that serve and improve communities
- Strengthen DePaul’s Vincentian Catholic values
At the heart of the Campaign is $100 million in new scholarships. This priority reflects DePaul’s historical, fundamental commitment to providing an excellent education to any student who dreams of it, without regard to economic circumstance.
