Request edit[edit]

My name is Robin Florzak and I am the Assistant Dean for Marketing and Communications at DePaul University’s Driehaus College of Business and Kellstadt Graduate School of Business, and part of my job is to make sure facts and background about the college are accurately communicated. As such, I have a conflict of interest for editing the Charles H. Kellstadt Graduate School of Business page directly. However, I would like to request that the reviewers revise the following facts to bring them up to date or correct errors:
  1. In the last line of the first paragraph, please update the enrollment to the current academic year: In the fall of 2012, Kellstadt enrolled 2,107 graduate students. Source: college fact sheet:
  2. Please consider adding to the end of the second paragraph: The business school also was ranked No. 1 for its master’s degree in taxation program by Tax Talent and in the top 25 entrepreneurship programs by Entrepreneur magazine in 2012. Sources:
  3. In the third paragraph, update the numbers of degrees to: Kellstadt offers both a part-time and full-time Master of Business Administration, which students customize by choosing among 30 concentrations; a combined MBA/Juris Doctor with the DePaul University College of Law; 14 specialized master's degrees that provide in-depth knowledge in a particular area of business; and joint MBA/MS programs. Same source as above.
  4. Update the Kellstadt’s divisions in this sentence to: Kellstadt now has seven major divisions: the School of Accountancy and Management Information Systems and the School of Hospitality Leadership and the departments of finance, economics, marketing, management, and real estate. Same source as above.
  5. Update this to reflect that the Ryan name is no longer used for the Center for Creavity and Innovation, to read: Kellstadt has 14 specialized centers and institutes that conduct research, host symposia and partner with local, national and international organizations to address issues within various fields. They include the Center for Creativity and Innovation, which was named one of the top-10 university "entrepreneurial hot spots" with "the most innovative programs for fledgling business owners" by Fortune Small Business magazine in its March 2006 issue; the Coleman Entrepreneurship Center; the Real Estate Center, which provides a rare university focus on the real estate market; and the Institute for Business and Professional Ethics. Source:
  6. In the History section, please correct an error in the title of the business school, replacing “Management” with “Business,” to read: In 1992, DePaul received a $9 million gift from the Kellstadt Foundation to establish the Kellstadt Graduate School of Business, named for Charles H. Kellstadt, former president, chairman and chief executive officer of Sears, Roebuck and Co. The school was formally dedicated in October 1993, when it moved into its current quarters in the DePaul Center, 1 E. Jackson Blvd.
  7. Please update the end of the history section, adding: In 2012, DePaul alumnus Richard H. Driehaus gave DePaul a $30 million gift to be used to recruit and retrain business faculty. DePaul renamed the College of Commerce the Driehaus College of Business. Part of the Driehaus College of Business, the Kellstadt Graduate School of Business retains its name. Sources: and

Besides the changes above, please also ask the editor of the Arabic-language version of this page to review that page’s content for accuracy and consider using the above page as a basis for a rewrite after it has been updated. I do not know Arabic, but an Arabic speaker mentioned to one of our associate deans that the Arabic page has factual inaccuracies, including a statement that DePaul University is affiliated with, or was created by, Loyola University in Chicago, which is not true.

I appreciate your help addressing these issues. Thanks!

I support these edits and have given your request edit a "G" for go-ahead, with the exception of number 2. I would suggest giving a crack at creating a "Reputation & rankings" section. CorporateM (Talk) 23:27, 14 February 2013 (UTC)

On Monday I plan to add brackets to many of the companies and individuals named so that they will link to corresponding Wiki entries, unless someone objects.

Fair use rationale for Image:Depaul.png[edit]

Image:Depaul.png is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion.
