Green, a 1974 graduate of DePauw and member of the University's Board of Trustees, is interviewed by Directions magazine, noting that the future of navigation technologies involves "dozens and dozens and dozens of applications which would fundamentally improve the safety of the car, the productivity of the car, the efficiencies, and we think that's a very exciting area," he says.

A podcast of the interview -- which lasts approximately 20 minutes and was recorded Tuesday -- is available via the magazine's Web site

A lead gift by Judson and Joyce Taglauer Green '75 made possible the $29 million expansion and renovation of DePauw's Performing Arts Center. Now known as the Judson and Joyce Green Center for the Performing Arts, the building was dedicated on October 25 in an evening which featured a performance by New York's acclaimed Orpheus Chamber Orchestra.
