"Dr. Casey was named DePauw's 19th president in 2008," today's announcement from Park Tudor notes. "Previously, he served as associate dean for academic affairs in the Faculty of Arts and Sciences at Harvard University and as assistant provost at Brown University, where he was charged with academic planning across the arts and sciences. As an undergraduate at the University of Notre Dame, he earned a B.A. in philosophy and economics, was elected to Phi Beta Kappa, and graduated summa cum laude, receiving the Economics Award for his class. Casey was also captain of Notre Dame's varsity swim team and was the University's "Scholar-Athlete of the Year" in 1985. He went on to earn his J.D. from Stanford University Law School in 1988, graduating with honors. He was a member and article editor of the Stanford Law Review. After pursuing a career in law, he earned his Ph.D. in the history of American civilization from Harvard University. His field of specialization was the history of American higher education and American intellectual history."
According to Doug Jennings, head of school, "Park Tudor has enjoyed a strong relationship with DePauw for a very long time. Our students who matriculate at DePauw find excellent teaching, a closely knit community and an emphasis on service. We look forward to hearing Dr. Casey address the PT Class of 2011."
