Through authentic experiences the classroom and community, we educate our students to be engaged citizens prepared to exercise their knowledge of science and medicine in a manner that upholds the dignity of all people. DePaul University is committed to the anti-racist work required to achieve equitable service of our community. We must work together to challenge the status quo, and continue asking hard questions despite answers that may pose discomfort to those in positions of privilege. ​
