"We have faculty exchanges, we have student exchanges. As Pat pointed out, half of my faculty is married to half of his faculty, so there's a lot of interlocking. But at its heart, the two schools actually deeply respect each other."
"We have a lot of respect for one another and we look forward to additional cooperation between the two schools," Dr. White asserted.
Earlier this week, the two leaders issued what is believed to be an unprecedented joint letter to Monon Bell fans from both colleges. The letter appeared in both the DePauw and Wabash student newspapers and on the two institutions Web sites. Learn more in this story.
