College of Education > About > Mission and History
The mission of DePaul University’s College of Education is to prepare educators, counselors, and leaders who are committed to creating equitable, compassionate, intellectually rich and socially just environments. As part of a Vincentian university, we cultivate the social conscience, understandings, and practices necessary to address social inequities among and with individuals, communities, and institutions. We develop critical, creative practitioners and scholars who continually inquire and reflect on educational and professional practices. Through authentic experiences in and outside the classroom, we educate our students to be engaged, service-oriented citizens of local and global communities.
