Greetings from the Chair!

It's my privilege to welcome you to the home of the English department.

The study and practice of reading and writing are central to a liberal arts education and critical to success in virtually all professional and personal contexts. The English department at DePaul boasts an innovative and engaging curriculum, a faculty of vibrant and highly accomplished teacher-scholars, friendly and efficient staff, outstanding students, and exciting opportunities for co-curricular involvement.

We invite you to visit us. Come and sharpen and polish your skills as a major, a minor, or a graduate student; attend our readings and other events; and socialize with faculty, staff, students and alumni.

Please also feel free to drop by my office and say hi and let me know how the English department can support you and help you realize your goals.
