VENDOR ETHICS & SUSTAINABILITY


Following the model of St. Vincent de Paul who consistently recognized and respected the dignity of each person, DePaul strives to maintain this same recognition and respect for the human person in all of its contractual relationships with service providers.

Like many other universities, DePaul frequently relies on business partners to provide the necessary goods and services required to run a modern university in a cost-effective manner so that the university can fulfill its educational mission and objectives. DePaul seeks to ensure - to the best of its knowledge and abilities - that no business partner engages in practices that undermine basic standards of human dignity.
