(Adapted from the University Ministry website for DePaul University)
William Emmanuel Hall is a man who loves all people, and is dedicated to serving those in need. Growing up on the Southside of Chicago, Will has witnessed the frustrations of ordinary people trying to make progress. Since the age of 4, William has lived out his commitment to uplifting, defending and restoring the poor and the truth.
William has spent ample time serving as an ordained minister, teacher, pastor, mentor, and “big brother” to many across the city of Chicago. As the University Minister, William desires to create sacred moments for students to connect with God, in addition to mobilizing students to communities both near and far.
William Hall has served as a resource for many students here on campus especially students of color. Why now? Why choose to take away the resource who has been instrumental in progressing student leaders of colors on campus? Why take away the person who is responsible for programs such as Conscious Conversations and Sacred Element which help ground students in spirituality throughout the week for those who do not identify with a specific religion yet want to seek a connection with God. If DePaul really cared about students they would not continue to try dissolving positions with faculty of color. ENOUGH!
