The program is a collaboration to educate faculty and structure curricula in an effort to develop future artists, designers, animators and engineers who will help the visual effects industry to grow. DePaul’s groundbreaking Digital Cinema program, one of the first of its kind in the nation, combines the artistic principles of film school programs with the technology expertise of digital graphics, visual effects and digital storytelling.


The College of Liberal Arts & Sciences[9] is DePaul's largest college and is located in the Lincoln Park campus, which occupies 36 acres in Chicago's Lincoln Park community.

Notable college faculty members include Aminah McCloud, director of the Islamic World Studies program; psychology professor Leonard Jason; Joseph Schwieterman, director of the Chaddick Institute for Metropolitan Development [11].

The School for New Learning[14] (SNL), created in 1972, was one of the first university-wide efforts in the United States to serve adult students through a separate college. Students partner with faculty and professional mentors to create a unique curriculum for earning an undergraduate or graduate degree and can earn college credit for knowledge gained through life experiences by demonstrating competence in various areas. SNL was named one of six "Best Practice" institutions in North America by the Council for Adult and Experiential Learning, an international non-profit organization which advocates for adult learning. The Houston-based American Productivity and Quality Center has touted SNL for its individualized education of adult students. Associate Professor Miriam Ben-Yoseph was named the 2006 Illinois Professor of the Year by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching and the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE)[15].

Originally named St. Vincent’s College, DePaul University was founded in 1898 by the Congregation of the Mission priests and brethren, known as the Vincentians. Followers of 17th century French priest Saint Vincent de Paul, they founded the university to serve Roman Catholic children of immigrants, many of whom were denied admission to universities based on ethnic and religious quotas.

Student enrollment grew from 70 in 1898 to 200 in 1903 in what is now the Lincoln Park neighborhood of Chicago. In that year, James Quigley, archbishop of Chicago, announced plans to create a preparatory seminary, now Archbishop Quigley Preparatory Seminary, for the archdiocese and allow Jesuit Saint Ignatius College, now Loyola University Chicago to move its collegiate programs to the north side, threatening St. Vincent College’s survival. In response, the Vincentians re-chartered in 1907 as DePaul University, expressly offering all of its courses of study to men and women of any religious background. DePaul began admitting women in 1911 and awarded degrees to its first female graduates in 1912. It was one of the first Catholic universities to admit female students in a co-educational setting.

When DePaul’s first sports teams were formed in the early 1900s, the monogram "D" was selected for the uniforms. From this originated the nickname "D-men" which evolved into "Demons." The color blue, which signifies loyalty and was chosen in 1901 by a vote of the student body, was added to the name to create the "Blue Demons." Image File history File linksMetadata Dpu_bktball. ...

Controversies

Like other universities, DePaul has incurred multiple controversies.

  • In 1967, the Black Student Union (BSU) was formed. In 1969, while in ongoing negotiations with DePaul administrators, members of the group occupied a campus building for two days and led several related rallies. The actions helped bring concerns of black students, and later those of Latino, Muslim and other student groups, to the fore. The university now sponsors a wide range of student organizations, including BSU, DePaul Irish Society, the DePaul Alliance for Latino Empowerment, United Muslims Moving Ahead, the Asian Cultural Exchange and the Activist Student Union.
  • In recent years, criticism of the student newspaper, The DePaulia, has led to independent periodicals by black, conservative, feminist, gay/lesbian, Latino and radical student groups. Students have been critical of disqualifications in student government elections, banning of a former student from campus, and limitations of a "Boycott Coke" campaign.[citation needed] Students from a range of political orientations have been critical of what they see as policies limiting freedom of expression.
  • The administration attempts to maintain a position respectful of the range of student beliefs.[[23]] [[24]] On May 24, 2006, the university sponsored a forum on free speech for students, faculty and interested community members, which featured Randall Kennedy of Harvard Law School and Ann Franke of United Educators in Washington, DC, and included a discussion between the speakers and audience members.
  • FIRE and others have criticized the university's decision to suspend without public hearing and not renew the contract of part-time faculty member Thomas E. Klocek in September 2004 for comments made to and behaviour towards Palestinian students concerning the conflict with Israel. The event resulted in FIRE's harsh criticism of the university's level of support for open discussion and debate.[4] University supporters maintain that the issue was not Klocek's views, but the manner in which he expressed them.
  • The university limited fliers protesting a visit of Ward Churchill, declaring them "propaganda."[5] Churchill's visit garnered a bomb threat that prompted the University to limit attendance at the event.
  • In June 2007, Norman Finkelstein, an outspoken political science professor, was denied tenure. This followed a highly public and rancorous evaluation process in which Dr. Finkelstein's nemesis Alan Dershowitz took the highly unusual and unorthodox step of sending unsolicited letters and dossiers to Finkelstein's peers at DePaul urging them to deny him tenure. DePaul's president, Rev. Dennis Holtschneider, denies that the outside pressure affected the university's position, saying "This attention was unwelcome and inappropriate and had no impact on either the process or the outcome of this case.”[6] Finkelstein's supporters claim he was denied tenure due to his writings on the Holocaust and on the state of the Palestinians under Israeli occupation.[7] Detractors such as Dershowtitz challenge Finkelstein's research methods and confrontational approach. On Sept. 5, 2007, Finkelstein resigned after he and the university reached a settlement; they released a joint statement [25].
