Labor Education Center

Founded in 1948 by a group of forward thinking labor leaders and progressive academics, DePaul University's Labor Education Center serves as a resource center to students, labor activists, academics and community leaders seeking a deeper understanding of labor issues and economic justice. To help build the next generation of labor movement leaders, the Center develops the skills of emerging leaders and assists some of the most seasoned labor professionals to identify opportunities and craft strategic approaches to overcoming adversity. Specifically, the Center builds the capacity of unions and worker organizations through high school and adult labor education, tailored trainings, research, and public events that promote transformative conversations about the labor movement.
