The dean of academic life at DePauw University and Herrick E.H. Greenleaf Professor of Computer Science, Dr. Berque today discussed the $10 million gift by anonymous donor, which will create a signature Technology Center and Visualization Laboratory, an engaging and visible high-tech space where students will develop technology and computing skills.
