Program Vision: The Sport, Fitness and Recreation Leadership program at DePaul seeks to provide a rich online learning environment that will facilitate the development of leaders in the areas of sport, fitness and recreation. Increasing content knowledge and developing leadership skills are essential outcomes of a graduate program. However, this program is based on a commitment to social justice, democracy, and critical engagement with ethical issues affecting students, clients and athletes. Our program assists current professionals in reflecting on and strengthening their own practice and challenging themselves and their colleagues to work effectively for justice and professional excellence.

Program Mission:

Institutional Mission: Guided by the university's 2018 strategic plan and its mission statement, the Office of Mission and Values collaborates with university departments and constituencies in ways that measurably enhance their understanding and support of DePaul University's distinctive Catholic, Vincentian, and urban identity. Together we provide the leadership that enables the university to achieve excellence in its educational mission, serve its diverse student body, and maximize its strategic capacities. As the premier international resource for Vincentian studies, the Office also serves a wide range of external constituencies who seek to deepen their engagement with Vincentian history, spirituality, and service.
