During the fall quarter and December intersession, we were hard at work giving back to the Chicago community. We collaborated with Volunteers of America of Illinois, a nonprofit that provides support and stability for at-risk and homeless vets, to collect donations for homeless veterans in and around the city. With drop-off locations in 12 different areas at the Loop, Lincoln Park and Naperville campuses, we collected 18 boxes of much-needed items, such as toothbrushes and toothpaste, shampoo and socks. Staff Council members also volunteered at the St. Vincent Soup Kitchen on Nov. 28 and Dec. 5, 12 and 19. Students typically fill these roles throughout the school year but are away due to December break.

In his Sept. 7th email to the university community, Father Holtschneider announced that "this fall, DePaul is launching a set of initiatives around the themes of speech and race. They follow up on questions raised last spring during campus conversations on race, but also the conversations swirling around us during this particularly charged election season and the experience of violence and racism here in Chicago." He encouraged the university to visit two newly created websites that were built to specifically address these issues:

Staff Council is here to advocate for staff, participate in university governance, and engage with staff about issues faced in the workplace. When it comes to questions and problems in the office or on campus, Staff Council can guide you in the right direction, though it is important to remember that we are neither a confidential resource nor a mediator.
