"Brian Casey served as a dean of academic affairs at Harvard, where he also earned a Ph.D. in history, following studies at Stanford and Notre Dame." The station, which was on campus yesterday to interview Dr. Casey, notes his excitement about DePauw and his eagerness to work with the University's faculty to make the experience offered by the liberal arts college even more distinctive.

"So I'm really looking forward to engaging with the faculty to make sure that they're supported in ways that they need to be supported, that they're working with the students" and ensuring that they "have a rich intellectual life."
