    Terrell Moore ’14 recalls fondly his collaboration with fellow DePauw students and faculty and staff members to address the dynamics of inequality.

    Meet Tony Robertson

    Tony Robertson, a Greencastle native and third-generation facilities worker, embodies DePauw. His office walls hold a lot of history, and he’s proud to share what has kept him here for 37 years.

And I’ll never forget that,” Robertson says.
