DePaul University’s Office of Community & Government Relations connects DePaul to Chicago and the world by strengthening relationships between DePaul’s Chicago and overseas programs and communities. These local, government and global relationships further enhance DePaul’s mission to prepare students not only to better understand, but to influence and shape the world in which they live.

Community Affairs at DePaul serves as a link between DePaul and its neighbors – the residents, businesses, neighborhood, alderman, civic and ethnic organizations of the City of Chicago. This office also facilitates communication and engagement with The City of Chicago and its Departments.

Another aspect of Community Affairs at DePaul is the Lincoln Park Community Research Initiative. Founded during the DePaul Centennial (1998-1999), the LPCRI is a partnership of Lincoln Park community organizations, businesses and DePaul University. Our goal is to collect, document and preserve the shared history of DePaul University and the Lincoln Park community. If your business is interested in partnering with us, please contact Julie Emms at (312) 362-8101.
