Vincent de Paul
Saint Vincent de Paul (1581-1660), for whom the university is named, lived in seventeenth century France. He was a compassionate and deeply spiritual priest who dedicated his life to serving the poor.

Vincent brought together and inspired groups of like-minded women and men to join him in addressing the needs of the poor and the reasons for their poverty and marginalization.

Vincent was also a man of wisdom who believed in the power of education to transform the world for the better. He believed in the sacredness of life, and the God-given dignity and inestimable value for each human person. He is aptly known as the “Apostle of Charity.”

The Vincentian Character of DePaul University
DePaul, a Catholic, Vincentian, and urban university, takes its name from Saint Vincent de Paul. The religious community founded by Saint Vincent, commonly known as "Vincentians," established the university and endowed it with a distinctive spirit: to foster in higher education a deep respect for the God-given dignity of all persons, especially the materially, culturally, and spiritually deprived, and to instill in educated persons a dedication to the service of others. The women and men of DePaul have retained this spirit as a highly valued heritage and a vital influence in every succeeding generation of the university's development.
