Joe Angeles/Washington University in St. Louis

Dear DePauw Students, Faculty, Staff, Alumni, Parents and Guardians,

It is with a joyous heart that I write to you today, on my first official day as DePauw’s president and a new member of the DePauw family.

I offer my thanks to so many of you, both on campus and off, who have shared well wishes, along with your hopes and dreams for this remarkable institution. Your aspiration is an inspiration and has reinforced a belief that first drew me to DePauw: that even in the midst of challenges the opportunities before us are boundless.    

I have long known DePauw as one of America’s great liberal arts colleges, and I accepted the appointment to serve as president with a deep respect for its history and legacy of student transformation. I also see great potential for DePauw, with all of us working together – students, faculty, staff, alumni, friends and our Greencastle community – to ensure this legacy grows and evolves not only to meet the needs of the students we serve today, but those we will serve in the years and decades to come. The foundations of this institution are as strong as any in the country.  I am deeply committed to collaborative, values-based leadership and creating a sense of renewal that taps our historic strengths while positioning DePauw for an even brighter future.
