De Paul First Grade College inspired by the legacy of Saint Vincent de Paul, is a community gathered together for the sake of our mission. St Vincent shared a belief in the God-given dignity of all people lived out in an ethos we call Vincentian personalism. He labored for the spiritual and material transformation of the people. Through organized works of service and political and societal interventions, he influenced public policy making and inspired others to engage in community service. For more than a century the values of inclusivity, personalism, and professionalism have shaped DePaul’s distinctive culture and our service to students.
