Our History


The university's history of educating teachers goes back to 1911, when a Department of Education was founded in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. In 1962, a separate school was founded to better address the needs and preparation of educators in training. In 2012, we marked the 50th anniversary of DePaul's College of Education.

In honor of our over 50 years of history, we've compiled some prominent moments and taken time to honor teachers.
