DePaul University

With Chicago as its classroom, DePaul University is nationally recognized for incorporating experiential learning throughout its curriculum. Partnerships throughout Chicago enable DePaul to provide an exceptional educational experience that is vibrant, pragmatic and socially engaged. Nearly half of all our undergraduates complete at least one internship before graduation, putting us among the top 10 universities nationally in providing such experience. DePaul meshes seamlessly with Chicago's commercial and artistic communities, offering students unparalleled access to internships and learning opportunities with many of the nations top corporations and organizations as well as a rich array of cultural events and institutions. An example is DePaul's partnership with Cinespace Chicago to provide students with film and television production experience in the midst of the citys premier movie studio. Our Steans Center, one of a handful of endowed service-learning programs in the nation, coordinates courses that teach students while simultaneously helping more than 400 organizations throughout the metropolitan area. Students tap such connections for internships, mentors, class projects, professional contacts and more. DePaul is one of 62 universities nationwide, and the only one in Illinois, to qualify for the Community Engagement citation given by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching. DePaul is the nations largest Catholic university, with over 23,000 students and about 300 degree programs, yet students easily forge personal connections. Many faculty members are nationally recognized in their field, yet they are accessible and approachable, taking an active interest in our students aspirations. More than 98 percent of classes are taught by faculty members, not teaching assistants, while about 90 percent of classes have 40 or fewer students. All full-time faculty members teach, and those who teach graduate students also teach undergraduates. Founded in 1898 by the Congregation of the Mission (Vincentians), DePaul's tradition of providing a quality education to students from a broad range of backgrounds, with particular attention to first-generation students, has resulted in one of the nation's most diverse student bodies. This wide range of backgrounds and perspectives enables students to learn from each other through our discussion- and project-oriented approach. Students admitted under DePaul's test-optional policy succeed at similar rates to students who submit the ACT or SAT. Of DePaul's 165,000 living alumni, about 108,000 reside in the metropolitan area, providing students with a network locally and around the world.
