I have worked three elections — the 2018 primary, the 2018 general, and the 2020 primary — as an election judge in my hometown.

February 16, 2020

I'd like to thank The DePaulia, Hannah Mitchell, and all those who spoke out about the difficulties adjunct faculty encounter, even those –and perhaps especially those –who withheld their names.

Correction: A previous version of this article incorrectly stated that DePaul University pulled its investments with Israel in 2014. The university never pulled investments within Israel.

We write this letter with both pride and passion—pride in the accomplishments and quality of the athletics program as a whole and passion in response to what we believe is a disproportionate amount of accusations, negativity and reliance on questionable sources that have appeared in The DePaulia in r...

Together, the Trump administration and the Republican-controlled Congress have worked relentlessly to jeopardize the already precarious and problemat...
