About DePaul University

DePaul University is the largest Catholic university in the nation with over 23,000 students enrolled in more than 300 undergraduate majors and graduate programs. DePaul combines a strong academic foundation with real-world experience. Our main campuses are located in two legendary Chicago neighborhoods. The Loop Campus is steps away from world-class culture, art, sports, entertainment and dining. The Lincoln Park Campus is nestled in the heart of an iconic Chicago neighborhood full of history and atmosphere, just blocks away from the parks and beaches that line the shores of beautiful Lake Michigan.

Originally named St. Vincent's College, DePaul was founded in 1898. Established to provide a high quality education to all people. DePaul continues to embrace this mission of inclusiveness today, recruiting and graduating students from different groups, cultures, faiths and socio-economic backgrounds.

At DePaul, we believe that education is a benefit for the public good. DePaul employees help to provide access to a great education for a diverse student population. In addition to this meaningful work, qualified faculty and staff get a great retirement match, tuition waivers and generous time off.

DePaul University cultivates a vibrant workplace with the goal of providing an extraordinary education for the next generation of innovators and leaders, across a diverse student body. Our culture is rooted in two of the great Chicago communities, and yet deeply connected to the world. DePaul provides students with a unique combination of respected academics and real-world knowledge. Our faculty and staff are part of a meaningful work environment that embraces an inclusive community informed by our Vincentian heritage.

DePaul has two primary campuses in Chicago. Considered one of the nation's most beautiful urban campuses, Lincoln Park is home to five colleges, the main library, numerous residence halls, a student center and the Ray Meyer Fitness and Recreation Center, open to employees and students. The Loop Campus is in the heart of the downtown business and cultural district. Both campuses are located in thriving communities that are well served by public transportation, providing a full array of housing choices for employees. As an international business hub and conference center, Chicago enables employees to build strong professional networks and remain on the leading edge of their fields.
