At DePaul, teaching and learning is our priority. That might seem obvious, but of the nation's 10 largest private universities, DePaul University is the only one whose faculty priority is teaching. We’re also the nation’s largest Catholic university, committed to an educational experience that weaves together mind, place, people and heart. Mind. Academic excellence that translates beyond the classroom DePaul is known and respected for its more than 275 graduate and undergraduate programs, and for the high caliber students who graduate with our degrees. We think the recognition and rankings are evidence of a challenging, very current learning environment that does more than just guide students through academic hoops.
