Our Mission

Since DePauw’s founding in 1837, the institution’s motto has been, “The college is the light and the splendor of the common good.” Academic Affairs aligns the curricular program with this vision of a liberal arts experience shaped by the ideals of access, relevance, and purpose. Led by the Vice President for Academic Affairs in partnership with a team of faculty administrators and staff colleagues, Academic Affairs supports excellence in teaching, learning, and research across our departments, programs, libraries, and instructional technologies.

Key initiatives of Academic Affairs include:

  1. A commitment to inclusive teaching and learning across all academic departments and programs

  2. Pedagogical excellence and innovation within a vibrant 21st century liberal arts curriculum

  3. Support for the continued development of faculty -- as individual teacher-scholars as well as members of a campus community -- throughout the stages of their careers.


DePauw is an equal opportunity employer dedicated to the goal of building a culturally diverse and pluralistic faculty committed to teaching and working in a multicultural and international environment.
