an experiential learning environment
DePauw University offers its students a contemporary liberal arts education. Its mission is to provide students an integrated, multi-disciplinary approach to critical analysis, problem solving, and the leadership skills required to translate what is learned into effective action and success. DePauw students know how to think, speak and write effectively and within context. These are the touchstones of a good liberal arts education.
Our students will enter and lead a world filled with complicated predicaments related to energy and food resources, health, ideological conflict, the environment, and the economy. There is no better preparation to address these issues within a global community than a liberal arts degree from DePauw.
Participation in Winter Term courses, including courses on campus, allows students to focus intently on a single issue and explore its roots in complicated variables while developing, using, and honing the skills necessary for productive dialogue and action. Combining academic rigor, robust social interaction, and experiential learning helps students become clear thinkers and socially adept citizens who engage and change their personal and professional communities.
