Highlights from the inauguration of Dr. Esteban
On Sunday, Nov. 19, the board of trustees entrusted A. Gabriel Esteban, Ph.D., with DePaul University's mission statement and presidential Chain of Office during a formal ceremony. Religious leaders, city officials, and civic and community leaders joined members of the university community in celebration at the official inauguration of DePaul's 12th president in Chicago's Navy Pier Grand Ballroom.
Since the moment of his appointment, Dr. Esteban has affirmed his strong commitment to DePaul's Catholic and Vincentian mission to provide a superior education to all, especially segments of society that previously have not had access to it, including the poor, first-generation college students and immigrants.
