  • Meet JC Lopez

    Meet JC Lopez

    JC Lopez faces the tasks that many DePauw employees confront every day. But dealing with those duties causes him to relish even more the time he spends engaging with students.

    “I come into work, and know I have to read emails and complete a task list,” he says. “And I’m thankful that I have opportunities to do some incredible things at DePauw.

    “But one of the things that I enjoy so much is spending time on campus engaging with students – whether it’s a quick hello or a long conversation, or grabbing coffee or dinner. It allows me to be genuine in a way that maybe students don't see in an office environment.”

    DePauw terrorism expert gets bird's eye view of Sri Lankan bombings

    A DePauw associate professor whose sabbatical trip to Sri Lanka has been put on hold in the wake of suicide bombings that killed nearly 300 people and wounded more than 500 says Sri Lankan security forces’ failure to act on a warning of the attacks is a “completely shocking failure of intelligence.”

     Deepa Prakash, an associate professor of political science, is in New Delhi and planned to travel to Sri Lanka in about a week, where she was going to conduct interviews with think tank staff members, academics, diplomats and other policy experts on Sri Lankan foreign policy in South Asia. She responded via email to questions posed by The Boulder.

    Lawyer Alexandra Cole ’76 Helps Build Society, Economy

    Alexandra Lutzow Cole ’76 decided to visit DePauw for a recruitment weekend during her senior year of high school. The ambitious teenager had her sights set on attending a top law school and becoming an attorney. Faculty and staff at DePauw convinced her that a DePauw education could help her realize those goals. They offered a scholarship and devised a way for her to graduate in only three years by taking additional classes each semester and during the summers.

  • Meet Angela Castaneda

    Meet Angela Castaneda

    From her days as a DePauw sophomore to her work today as the Edward Myers Dolan professor of anthropology and chair of the Sociology and Anthropology Department, Angela Castaneda has come full circle.

    “I’m a professor at DePauw because, when I was a student here, I had a professor, Andrew Williams, who was an anthropologist,” says Castaneda, who has taught at DePauw since 2004. When she walked into his introductory cultural anthropology class in 1996, she says, “I didn’t really know what anthropology was but fell in love with the class.”
