New and Refocused Centers and Institutes
Our centers and institutes are the places where the college and community intersect most deeply. This year we inaugurated the Center for Community Health Equity
, in partnership with Rush University, to improve health and eliminate health inequity in Chicago. We also welcomed into our fold the Women’s Center
– a catalyst for positive social change around gender, race, class, nationality, ethnicity, and sexual orientation – which has been part of DePaul for 30 years. And our Center for Interreligious Engagement became the Center for Religion, Culture, and Community
, better reflecting its work of building sustainable bridges among individuals and groups of different faith traditions. Work is ongoing to make established centers more responsive to DePaul and community members.
