Advisor Letter of Service

Faculty and staff advisors provide students an unique support system and resource for students as they grow within their involvement on campus. Due to this positive impact, the Office of Student Involvement will provide the Advisor Letter of Service upon request to display the role played by advisors. Here you will be able to access the letter request form within OSI's DeHub page. Thank you for your service to the student organization community! 

Louise's Sewing Club

Louise's Sewing Club is a group of DePaul students, staff, and faculty who have access to sewing machines and want to assist with creating PPE supplies for Chicago area health care workers (If you do not have a machine we can supply one). Members of Louise's Sewing Club will have supplies mailed to them, will create PPE supplies such as gowns and face masks, and then will ship materials back for use by Chicago health care workers.

Digital Resources for Student Organizations

Even though DePaul has shifted to remote work, your student organization can still meet and connect through a variety of virtual options. For example, did you know that DePaul faculty, staff, and student employees have access to use Zoom, a web-based conferencing platform that is accessible on MacOS, Windows, iOS, and Android devices. Virtual meetings and gatherings taking place on this platform can be joined by anyone that has access to the link. If your student organization would like to host a Zoom meeting, please request by emailing
