                  American Bar Association.

              I   The College of Law was named one of the nation’s top

                  U.S. Law School Ranking by Minneapolis-based publisher
                  Law & Politics.

              I   Since 1992, the college has been a member of the Order of
                  the Coif, nationally recognized as a mark of excellence in
                  legal studies.

              The College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences (LAS)
              is recognized for its innovative liberal studies core
              curriculum that combines critical thinking with
              community engagement to provide students with
              solid career preparation. DePaul’s first and largest
              college offers a wide range of degree programs, from
              traditional majors such as English and philosophy to
              innovative programs such as Islamic World Studies,
              unique interdisciplinary majors and combined
              bachelor/graduate degree options.

              I   A total of 3,444 undergraduate and 1,282 graduate students
                  were enrolled in LAS in fall 2011. Even though the college
                  itself is large, about 70 percent of its classes have 30 or
                  fewer students.

              I   The college has 314 full-time faculty members in 28
                  undergraduate and 20 graduate degree programs. Its size
                  enables a depth and breadth of academic programs rarely
                  found in liberal arts colleges, ensuring a strong
                  interdisciplinary curriculum.

              I   In January 2012, the college dedicated the $33 million
                  Arts and Letters Building, a four-story building with a
pages 20-21

                  central atrium, 47 state-of-the-art classrooms, a PC lab for
                  math and science specialties, student study areas and
                  lounges and faculty offices.

              I   The School of Public Service is one of the few in the nation,
                  with a unique curriculum that integrates nonprofit
                  management and public administration.

              I   The National Security Agency and STARTALK 2011 awarded
                  grants totaling $200,000 to fund two of DePaul’s Chinese
                  language programs.

              In response to the growing demand for well-educated
              professionals in the rapidly growing health care and
              science fields, DePaul established its 10th college, the
              College of Science and Health (CSH), in 2011. It
              includes the programs of biology, chemistry,
              environmental science, health sciences, mathematics,
              nursing, physics, psychology, and science, technology,
              engineering and math (STEM) studies.

              I   In the fall of 2011, CSH enrolled 2,125 undergraduate and 708
                  graduate students. The college has 129 faculty members.

              I   The health sciences degree, established in 2011, is DePaul's
                  fastest growing major. The major offers two concentrations:
                  bioscience—for careers in one-on-one patient care, such as
                  medicine or nursing—and health care policy and practice—
                  for careers in health care administration, public health or

                  gold LEED certification from the U.S. Green Building
                  Council. Together with its sister building, completed in 1998,
                  it creates an interdisciplinary education and research hub.

                  Community Research and Action, a division of the American
                  Psychological Association.

              I   Leonard A. Jason, director of the Center for Community
                  Research, received a $3.3 million National Institutes

                  aftercare programs for ex-offenders with a history of
                  substance abuse.

              I   Kenshu Shimada, associate professor of biology and
                  environmental science, detailed his discovery of
                  Bonnerichthys, a giant prehistoric fish, in the internationally
                  acclaimed journal Science.

              The School for New Learning (SNL) has earned
              international acclaim for its innovative approach to
              teaching adult students. The school gives students
              college credit for what they have learned from life
              and work experience and allows them to fully
              customize their undergraduate or graduate degree.

              I   In fall 2011, SNL enrolled 1,974 students on five campuses and
                  through online courses. The average student is 39 years old.
                  A total of 88 percent attend classes part time; 42 percent are
                  students of color; 47 percent live in the suburbs and another
                  43 percent live in Chicago.

              I   SNL was founded in 1972, making DePaul one of the first
                  universities in the United States to meet the needs of older
                  students through a separate college.

              I   SNL’s dean, Marisa Alicea, is one of the few Latinas in a
                  high-level position in higher education (nationally, only 2.4
                  percent of academic deans are Hispanic).

              I   In 2007, University Business Magazine named SNL’s Chronic
                  Illness Initiative one of its “30 Smart Business Ideas.” The
                  initiative allows students with chronic illnesses to earn a
                  college degree outside the constraints imposed by
                  traditional programs.

                  Advancement and Support of Education.

              I   The school was named one of six “Best Practice” institutions
                  in North America by the Council for Adult and Experiential
                  Learning. The American Productivity and Quality Center has
                  praised SNL for its individualized education of adult students.

The renowned School of Music admits only the most
talented students to its award-winning programs in
performance, music composition, music education, jazz
studies, sound recording technology and performing
arts management.

I   The school enrolled 245 undergraduate and 137 graduate
    students in fall 2011.

I   The school’s 120 full- and part-time faculty members
    perform in many of Chicago’s renowned music institutions,
    including the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Lyric Opera of
    Chicago, the Chicago Chamber Musicians and numerous
    chamber music and jazz ensembles.

I   More than 300 public performances in a variety of musical
    styles each year are presented at the DePaul Concert Hall
    and Recital Hall in Lincoln Park, DePaul’s Merle Reskin
    Theatre and the Jazz Showcase in the South Loop, and
    Orchestra Hall at Chicago’s Symphony Center.

I   The award-winning DePaul Jazz Ensemble performs publicly
    throughout the academic year at jazz clinics
    and concerts.

I   Bob Lark, director of the jazz education program, received
    Down Beat magazine’s 2010 Jazz Education Achievement

                                                                    pages 26-27

I   Two record labels, Jazzed Media and Reference Recordings,
    promote CDs created by the DePaul Jazz Ensemble at no
    cost to DePaul and pay the school for CDs sold. This
    arrangement is quite rare; most universities must pay a
    record label to promote student recordings.

I   Music students learn from the "masters" through
    masterclasses throughout the year. Guest artists have
    included: Piotr Beczala and Greer Grimley, stars of the Lyric
    Opera of Chicago; Stephanie Blythe, mezzo-soprano;
    Rudresh Mahanthappa, jazz saxophone, composer and
    recording artist; Mark O'Connor, violinist and composer;
    Mike Roylance, tuba, Boston Symphony Orchestra; and
    Gábor Tarkövi, trumpet, Berlin Philharmonic.

I   Prominent graduates include recently retired Chicago
    Symphony Orchestra concertmaster Samuel Magad;
    Chicago Children’s Choir Artistic Director Josephine Lee;
    Metropolitan Opera baritone Stephen Powell; jazz artists
    Brian Culbertson and Joe Vito; and members of the rock

              THE THEATRE SCHOOL
              John Culbert, Dean

              The Midwest’s oldest theatre training conservatory,
              The Theatre School offers highly specialized programs
              that employ a learning-by-doing approach, featuring
              student work in all areas of production. Admission to
              the extremely selective program is limited, ensuring a
              rigorous, intensive, hands-on education.

              I   In fall 2011, The Theatre School enrolled 289 undergraduate
                  and 38 graduate students.

              I   The Theatre School’s faculty
                  includes 102 working
                  professionals who are among
                  the most recognized and in-
                  demand theatre artists in
                  Chicago and elsewhere today.

              I   More than 30,000 people
                  annually attend more than
                  40 productions presented by
                  The Theatre School as part of
                  its Showcase, Chicago

              I   Chicago magazine’s “Best of Chicago 2011” named TimeLine
                  Theatre, founded by DePaul alumni, the best theatre company
                  in Chicago. It also named faculty members Dexter Bullard its
                  director of choice and Nick Sandy Pullin actor of choice for
                  2011. Pullin was named artistic director of Remy Bumppo
                  Theatre in 2012.

              I   The Backstage College Guide to the Performing Arts lists
                  The Theatre School, along with Yale, Juilliard and Carnegie
                  Mellon, as “prime examples of places that look after their
                  own. The networks that these schools have developed on
                  a national scale can be invaluable for new graduates.”

              I   The Theatre School will move into its new home, a 165,000-
                  square-foot multipurpose facility designed by internationally
                  renowned architectural firm Pelli Clarke Pelli, in 2013.

              I   Prominent graduates include actors Gillian Anderson,
                  W. Earl Brown, Monique Coleman, Judy Greer, Elizabeth
                  Perkins, Amy Pietz, Jacqueline Williams and Oscar-nominee
                  John C. Reilly; Tarell McCraney, award-winning playwright;
                  Criss Henderson, executive director, Chicago Shakespeare
                  Theatre; and Tim Nordwind, bassist for the Grammy Award-
                  winning band OK Go.

              DePaul’s alumni network is now nearly 150,000
              strong. Two-thirds live in the Chicago metropolitan
              area, leading Crain’s Chicago Business to dub DePaul
              “the backbone of Chicago business.” Alumni are
              active and vital contributors to the university,
              Chicago, communities worldwide, and to almost
              every type of corporation and organization.

              I   DePaul awards more than 6,000 degrees annually.

              I   Employers seek DePaul alumni. Surveys indicate that
                  82 percent of 2010 baccalaureate recipients were employed
                  and/or in graduate school within six months of graduation,
                  an 8 percent increase over 2009. In addition, 71 percent of
                  bachelor’s degree recipients and 46 percent of master’s
                  degree recipients found a new job or a better job with their
                  existing employer after graduation—evidence that even in a
                  competitive marketplace, DePaul graduates have the
                  practical experience and expertise to advance and succeed
                  in their chosen fields.

              I   Alumni live in all 50 states, five U.S. territories and about 50
                  countries worldwide. Over 97,000 live in the Chicago area.
                  The countries with the largest number of DePaul alumni
                  outside the United States are Canada, Hong Kong, Thailand
                  and Bahrain.

              I   DePaul alumni make up a substantial portion of the work

                  Abbott Laboratories, Accenture, Allstate Insurance, Chicago
                  Public Schools, City of Chicago, JPMorgan Chase, Kraft
                  General Foods, Morningstar and Motorola.

              I   Alumni chapters exist in Chicago, Arizona, Southern
                  California, New York City, Denver and Washington, D.C.,
                  Alumni events typically occur in more than 20 cities across
                  the country and around the world every year.

              I   More than 1,000 alumni mentor students and their fellow
                  alumni through the Alumni Sharing Knowledge (ASK)
                  program. Alumni actively take part in career networking and
                  professional development activities, where they interact
                  with current students, faculty and staff.

              I   DePaul offers graduates opportunities to continue to
                  develop both professionally and intellectually through
                  networking events, continuing education, professional
                  development classes and formal degree programs.

              Enthusiastic students organized DePaul’s first sports
              team just two years after the university was founded;
              the Blue Demons have inspired a passionate following
              ever since. A member of the elite BIG EAST Conference
              since 2005, DePaul competes in NCAA Division I in
              13 sports.

              I   DePaul sponsors teams in men’s and women’s basketball,
                  cross country, soccer, tennis, and track and field, in women’s
                  softball and volleyball, and in men’s golf.

              I   DePaul teams and athletes have appeared in NCAA
                  post-season competitions 41 times in the past decade.

              I   DePaul women's basketball coach Doug Bruno was an
                  assistant coach for the USA Basketball National Team that
                  won the FIBA World Championships in October 2010. The
                  gold medal was the third for Bruno with USA Basketball.
                  He notched his 500th win as a coach early in DePaul's
                  2010-2011 season and was named an assistant for the 2012
                  U.S. Olympic team.

              I   In 2010-11, four DePaul programs—men's and women's
                  basketball, golf and women's tennis—were recognized
                  by the NCAA for having a perfect APR rate, which measures
                  retention and graduation. DePaul led all BIG EAST programs
                  with five teams—women's basketball, golf, men's soccer,
                  softball and women's tennis—that were recognized by the
pages 32-33

                  league with the Team Academic Excellence Awards, which
                  recognizes the highest collective grade-point averages in
                  each conference sport.

              I   In 1900, when DePaul’s first athletic team was organized,
                  the monogram “D” was selected for the uniforms. From
                  this originated the nickname “D-men,” which evolved into
                  “Demons.” The color blue signifies loyalty and was chosen

              I   DePaul’s men’s basketball program gained national
                  prominence under longtime coach Ray Meyer. Meyer’s teams
                  won the NIT in 1945 (then the only national competition),
                  made 21 post-season appearances and reached the NCAA
                  Final Four in 1978-79. He was elected to the Naismith
                  Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in 1979, the fourth active
                  coach to be so honored.

              I   Prominent graduates include National Basketball Association
                  players George Mikan (one of the “NBA 50 Greatest
                  Players”), Mark Aguirre, Terry Cummings and Rod Strickland;
                  Women’s National Basketball Association player Latasha
                  Byears; champion hurdler Kerry Sloan; and sports agents
                  Todd Musburger and Stephen Zucker.

              DePaul prepares its students to be global citizens
              through a vibrant network of study-abroad and
              overseas degree programs that enable faculty and
              students to bring new perspectives back to their
              classrooms and careers.

              I   DePaul regularly sponsors between 50 and 65 study abroad
                  programs in about 35 countries. Over 1,000 students and
                  approximately 60 faculty members participate each year.
                  Activities include short-term study (two to three weeks),
                  intensive summer study (five to eight weeks) and term-long
                  study (10 weeks or more). Programs are offered through
                  study abroad partnerships with DePaul’s schools and
                  colleges and with universities and language schools around
                  the world.

              I   DePaul launched its FY@broad, a study abroad program for
                  freshmen, in 2009. The program sends groups of students
                  to study in Jordan, Germany and Ireland.

              I   Over 1,300 students from about 100 countries study at
                  DePaul annually. Most of them are graduate students in the
                  Kellstadt Graduate School of Business (KGSB) and the
                  College of Computing and Digital Media (CDM).

              I   KGSB faculty members teach the MBA program in Manama,
                  Bahrain, and Taipei, Taiwan. In addition, they teach the
                  Master of Science in Human Resources program in Bahrain.
