Dean Barton's Video Message, June 12, 2020

Please view The Prayer Service for Justice and Peace that was held in the Duquesne University Chapel on Monday, June 8, 2020. Fr. Bill Christy, Director of Campus Ministry and University Chaplain, officiated the moving service. He was joined by Dr. Jeff Mallory, Assistant Vice President for Diversity, Inclusion and Student Advancement, and Dr. Anthony Kane, Assistant Director of Residence Life. The service was created from the Archdiocese of New Orleans, Requiem for Black Children of God. During the powerful Reading of Names, we recognize that we must continue to say the names of George Floyd and far too many other victims of racial injustice.

Partnership with Xavier University of Louisiana, the nation's only Catholic school among the Historically Black Colleges and Universities (April 2020)

Young people, law students, legal educators, and lawyers discussed law school and the legal profession as it relates to the diverse needs of the community.
