AdU community congratulates DePaul University’s president

Date Posted: Nov 2, 2010 at 08:24:23 AM

The Adamson University community is expressing its warm congratulations to the Rev. Dennis H. Holtschneider, C.M. for having been given a six-year contract extension as president of DePaul University in Chicago by its Board of Trustees. DePaul is the largest Catholic university in the U.S. Like Adamson, it is also administered by the Congregation of the Mission (C.M.) or the Vincentians.


Mary Dempsey, Chair of the Board of Trustees of DePaul announced the approval of the extension. Citing strong support for Fr. Holtschneider’s extraordinary leadership as the university’s eleventh president, the Board expressed confidence that he will continue to build on DePaul’s rich tradition of providing a quality education to a diverse student population.


Adamsonians are quite familiar with Rev. Holtschneider’s name, having been once a guest of the University on May 26, 2005. Ever supportive of AdU’s efforts of providing quality education, his visit established stronger ties between the two Vincentian schools and started a lot of projects rolling. Among these were the Academic Service Learning (ASL) Program where two professors from DePaul came to teach and share their experiences, with two more coming after two years for a follow-up; the Summer Vincentian Formation Program with Fr. Ed Udovic and Fr. Pat Murphy coming in as resource persons; the online scholarship slots on Masters in Public Administration with DePaul granted to AdU faculty; and, the Training for Student Affairs Practitioners conducted by Prof. Jim Doyle and Dr. Peggy Burke.


Rev. Holtschneider started his presidency almost simultaneously with that of Adamson University President Fr. Gregg L. Bañaga, Jr., C.M. back in SY 2003-2004. The two have developed a fruitful partnership for their respective institutions ever since. RDA
