Requiring a vaccine and booster for faculty, staff and students and maintaining a mask-friendly campus are central to DePaul’s multi-layered COVID-19 mitigation plans. Together, we will help one another stay healthy.

Take Care DePaul
"Take Care of Yourself. Take Care of Each Other. Take Care DePaul." 

Take Care DePaul is a call for all members of the DePaul community (students, faculty, staff, families and alumni) to create a healthy and safe campus community. We encourage all community members to make choices that positively impact their well-being and the well-being of others, and that aligns with DePaul’s Vincentian mission.
