In September 2017, Depaul USA's Dax program officially opened the first Dax House in the city's Pilsen neighborhood as a way to serve housing-insecure students. Following the success of the Pilsen house, the program hopes to open a second Chicago-based house in late spring.
Last week, Trinity High School announced the appointment of Corinne Benedetto as its next president. Benedetto currently serves as DePaul's interim dean of the School for New Learning. She will remain in that role through June 30, when she retires from the university.
During his ten-year tenure, DePaul's first president, the Very Reverend Peter V. Byrne, C.M., would expand the then St. Vincent's College both physically and academically. These actions led to what would ultimately be the most profound achievement of his tenure: the creation of DePaul University itself.
