DePaul University President A. Gabriel Esteban, Ph.D., announced that Vencentian Father Guillermo (Memo) Campuzano will serve as the vice president for Mission and Ministry. His appointment is effective March 1.
A DePaul alumnus, Father Memo returns to his alma mater from an assignment at the United Nations, where he currently serves as a representative for the Congregation of the Mission. He previously held multiple positions at DePaul, including director of the Office of Religious Diversity, university chaplain in Catholic Campus Ministry, as well as adjunct professor in the departments of Religious Studies, Catholic Studies, Modern Languages and the School for Public Service.
“Our Catholic, Vincentian and urban mission has always been and will always be at the heart of everything we do at DePaul,” Esteban says. “As a Vincentian priest, teacher and scholar, and through his lived experience, Father Memo has made the mission central to his life. His theological knowledge combined with his passion for DePaul will enable and inspire the university community to continue to put our mission and values into practice.”
During his eight years at DePaul, Father Memo also helped design and implement an interfaith framework for service and learning called Vincentians in Action, a program that engages more than 2,000 DePaul students each year.
“For me, as a man of faith, my journey has never been by accident,” Father Memo says. “As Vincent would say, ‘this is the work of Providence.’ I love DePaul University very much and as a vowed man, I desire to commit my life fully through my passion, my energy and my time, to advance the university’s mission, in the service of the students, faculty and staff.”
