Through creative partnerships across academic disciplines and with community organizations and institutions, members of DePaul’s Urban Collaborative pursue cutting-edge research with a commitment to ethically-engaged experiential learning. Our faculty and students work to identify and address the pressing questions facing cities and the people who live in them.
DePaul's Urban Collaborative (UC) is the home for the university's scholarship, teaching, and projects related to cities, close to home and across the world. The Urban Collaborative draws upon expertise from a wide variety of units and centers in the College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences, including:
Any LAS unit with faculty or curriculum engaging urban issues may affiliate with the Collaborative. To do so, Department Chairs/Program Directors of interested units should send an email to Euan Hague (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Jacqueline Lazu (email@example.com), outlining their unit’s urban-related course offerings/urban-focused faculty, and making a commitment to sending someone to the quarterly UC meetings. An affiliation will be for one year and will be renewable annually.
