Construction was completed on a six-story residence hall, DePaul's first permanent student residence, at 2312 N. Clifton Ave. on the Lincoln Park Campus (see 1976).
DePaul organized the first university senate, a 75-member body comprised of students, faculty and staff, with a representative voice in the institution's affairs.
Like most universities, DePaul was the site of anti-war demonstrations in the 1960s and 70s.
DePaul receives a two-year, $150,000 matching grant from the National Institute of Mental Health and the Illinois Department of Mental Health to establish a mental health clinic (named the Mental Health Center), the only funded facility of its kind in the country attached to a department of psychology.
Construction was completed on a three-story student union at 2324 N. Seminary Ave. on the Lincoln Park Campus, named the University Center (see 1978), and renamed the Stuart Center in 1978.
