Our Alumni

School of Public Service alumni students, faculty, Loop Campus, study abroad

Since 1970 more than 2000 students have successfully graduated from the School of Public Service.

DePaul alumni are never hard to find. They can be found in virtually every industry, company and community in the greater Chicago area—as well as all around the globe. What distinguishes a DePaul graduate is the value they bring to their organization and corporations. Our graduates hold deep respect for diverse ideas, cultures, and communities. Employers often remark that a hallmark of a DePaul alum is their appreciation for having a global perspective which is something greatly needed in this dynamic and ever-changing society.

SPS alumni are our ambassadors. Our alumni typically pursue careers in government, non-profit association management and within various nonprofit organizations. Our alumni act as ambassadors of the school when they encourage current and future students, stay abreast of program developments, support school events, and celebrate the accomplishments of our graduates in university publications.
