Faces of DePaul


In our 125 years, we’ve seen a lot of greatness. While the impact the DePaul community has made isn’t limited to the faces on this page, we’re celebrating these 125 notable people who’ve left their mark, inspired us and used their influence to build a better future.

How nominees were selected

The DePaul community was asked to nominate those who not only embodied DePaul’s mission, but also made an impact within the university, community and beyond. Past and present faculty, staff, students, donors and friends of DePaul were all eligible for nominations. The final selection for the 125 Faces of DePaul was made by our Anniversary Committee.
