Alumni Retreats at DePauw

Do you ever wish you could return to the classrooms at DePauw where you had some of your most memorable learning experiences? To engage in spirited conversations about significant societal issues? To explore the personal and professional values that guide us and to grapple with the ethical issues that challenge us? We are pleased to announce a new program for DePauw alumni that will offer you that opportunity. The Janet Prindle Institute for Ethics will host a series of “Retreats at DePauw” that capture the best qualities of the DePauw learning experience. This is a wonderful opportunity to return to campus for a few days to join fellow life-long learners in conversation and reflection about the important issues in our lives. For more information, please contact Linda Clute at The Prindle Institute for Ethics at or (765) 658-5017.
