As a teaching institution, DePaul always puts its students first. As scholars, our full‐time faculty are experts in the areas of transportation, housing, crime, environmental policy, community health, public finance, economic development, sustainable international development, inequality, and the science of philanthropic giving, a truly broad department of experts.
Our mission at SPS is an important one: to educate the next generation of public service leaders. Through this, we also seek to build a community of like‐minded individuals who seek to improve the people, places and organizations that make up the public service network in Chicago and beyond.
