TIGERS TAKE CARE
When times get tough, DePauw comes together. We commit to taking care of each other – so no one has to go it alone. We learn from our mistakes – so we can hold ourselves accountable. Now more than ever, we need to lean into our liberal arts tradition as we adapt to historic change. We will do our best to protect the health and safety of our Tiger family – so we can continue to laugh together and learn together, and then take on the world.
As the DePauw community returns to campus, it is important to communicate effectively and share best practices to keep our entire community healthy.
