Beginning with a literature review, the authors of this study define organizational and institutional culture and stress the importance of communicating Vincentian culture and ideology to DePaul University’s faculty and staff. The specific goals of the Vincentian Heritage Tour (VHT) are summarized. During the VHT, participants visit Vincentian sites and learn about them as they follow in the footsteps of Vincent de Paul. The study assesses the effectiveness of the VHT in deepening participants’ understanding of Vincentian values and ideology. It also examines how participants apply this understanding to their work at DePaul. The study’s methodology and its quantitative and qualitative findings are discussed. Tables presenting the results are included.
