Rev. Denis Holtschneider, President, DePaul University

As president of DePaul University in Chicago, the largest Catholic university in the United States, I can give Don Mullan my strongest recommendation. My conversations and interactions with him reveal him to be a man of great principle, insight, collaboration and forgiveness. He proved his effectiveness to bring about positive change and reconciliation through his book “Eyewitness Bloody Sunday: The Truth,” … [which contributed to an] historic government apology.

Don is a spellbinding storyteller who brings a passion for justice to the fight. He is tireless and generous…

Don has served many roles throughout his life: witness, historian, writer, educator and human rights crusader. He has used nonviolence to correct historical errors and deliver justice to those denied. He is a determined person and has the ability to overcome personal hurdles, like his struggle with dyslexia. He commands respect and has demonstrated his ability to bring people together around a cause. Perhaps his best contribution is his imagination and the capacity to put unusual ideas together and dream of a different future.
