This year's Service Speaks event will be Friday, May 12th, 2017 at 8:30AM-2:00PM. Service Speaks showcases the multiple ways DePaul University students and faculty work with community partners to advance social justice in the Chicago area. Student and community partner presentations will highlight learning and contributions through community-based service learning, internships, community-based research and service. This year, we will kick off the event with a special networking session where community partners will share their work and connect with students and faculty members. We’ve also included a special call to action—focusing on the “Assets” of the Asset-Based Community Development approach—in a lunchtime discussion at the Cortelyou Commons. We invite you all to join us at the Service Speaks Conference this year!
DePaul ENGAGE is a coalition of the departments, programs, and people at DePaul who seek to engage students and the DePaul community in learning and action related to socially responsible leadership in the Vincentian tradition. By working together more intentionally, we develop and implement collective strategies that reach, involve, and impact a greater number of students and those in the DPU community through our various curricular and co-curricular programs and opportunities for engagement and shared learning.
DePaul Community Service Association
The DePaul Community Service Association (DCSA) seeks to promote the dignity of all by following the example of St. Vincent de Paul and St. Louise de Marillac. The function of DCSA is twofold:
- To provide meaningful volunteer opportunities to DePaul students who serve our community partners in sustained, mutually beneficial relationships
- To promote reflection and social justice rooted in Vincentian values.
