With more than 1,500 books available, the Office of Multicultural Student Success (OMSS)'s Book Loan Library helps defer the cost of textbooks for students using this service. Students can borrow any textbook in the OMSS library free of charge for an entire quarter. We ask that students who borrow a textbook also donate a book at the end of the quarter, to keep our library growing and current. Your gift will help us purchase textbooks for DePaul’s most popular classes to ensure we can meet demand, expand the number of books we offer and ensure the titles we have on-hand are up-to-date.
The Office of Multicultural Student Success works to improve the retention and graduation rates of students of color and first-generation students, students who demonstrate financial need, undocumented students and students with marginalized genders and sexualities. The office facilitates opportunities for engagement, advocates for students on campus and is able to provide resources that aid in their successful progress through graduation. These resources include four identity-based student centers (LGBTQA, Black, Asian/Pacific-Islander/Desi-American (APIDA) and Latinx), intersectional identity programming, undocumented student resources, advising/counseling, career readiness/graduate school programming, first-generation college student support and scholarship information.
