Sports competitions among NCAC competitors, including DePauw, suspended through Dec. 31

July 22, 2020

Following several months of planning for the safe return of athletics, DePauw University and its North Coast Athletic Conference partners have agreed to suspend competition through Dec. 31.

“My heart aches for our student-athletes, coaches and staff,” said Stevie Baker-Watson, DePauw associate vice president for campus wellness and Theodore Katula director of athletics. “For our 600-plus student-athletes, competition is a key component of their DePauw experience, but their safety and well-being is our top priority. After our students left campus in March, our coaches stayed engaged with them and were instrumental in guiding them through a very challenging time. I’m proud of the work they've all done and will continue to do through the remainder of 2020. TeamDePauw is already moving forward and planning for 2021.”
