2007 COMMENCEMENT ––– ALUMNI REUNION WEEKEND COMMUNITY LEADERSHIP AWARD RECIPIENTS

E


From the CHAIRMAN OF THE BOARD of TRUSTEES

am honored to serve as chair of DePauw’s Board of In addition to viewing progress on these facilities, Trustees at this important time in the University’s alumni heard a panel presentation about Strengthening history. I want to commend the previous board DePauw’s Greek system. I was fortunate to be a member chair, James B. Stewart Jr. ’73, who provided of the Trustees’ Greek Committee that reviewed the report admirable leadership, including working with of the Greek Fact-Finding Commission, so I can personally trustees, administrators and faculty members to conduct attest to the opportunity we have to provide a healthy and a comprehensive review of the mission, goals and resources secure learning and living environment for all DePauw of the University and develop an effective five-year strategic students. You can read more in this magazine about the plan, Securing Our Legacy. We are nearing the midpoint actions the trustees have taken to support the Greek system. R. David Hoover of the strategic plan, and a significant amount has already The trustees are firmly committed to keeping DePauw and been accomplished. Now is a good time to evaluate further opportuniits Greek system as leaders in the national Greek community. ties for DePauw. Alumni who returned to campus for Alumni Reunion Weekend in June – as my wife, Suzanne, and I did for our 40th class reunion – saw firsthand some of the ways in which their alma mater continues to thrive. DePauw’s commitment to academic excellence and intellectual engagement is bolstered by the largest-ever number of faculty members, some of whom were featured in programs during reunion weekend. While faculty members today use more technology to enhance teaching and learning, they continue to devote the kind of personal attention to the development of their students that alumni remember from their DePauw experience. Very notable on campus was the nearly completed construction of the new Judson and Joyce Green Center for the Performing Arts. Alumni received a glimpse of how this outstanding facility will enhance the performing arts at DePauw and create even more opportunities for students not only in the School of Music and theatre courses, but also for College of Liberal Arts students who participate in ensembles and other activities there. The Green Center will be formally dedicated during Old Gold Weekend Oct. 25-28, 2007. Another major event during Old Gold Weekend will be the dedication of the Janet Prindle Institute for Ethics, located in the DePauw Nature Park. The institute will support an important part of the University’s strategic plan in terms of preparing students to make a difference in the world. The Prindle Institute will encourage the examination of ethical issues by students, faculty members and visiting scholars from other institutions. Activities there will support the liberal arts curriculum in developing responsible leaders for the future. I encourage alumni to attend Old Gold Weekend and participate in the dedication of the Prindle Institute for Ethics as well as the Judson and Joyce Green Center for the Performing Arts.

Progress has been made on another strategic goal by expanding the diversity of DePauw’s student body to reflect the interconnected and global world in which graduates will live and work. When DePauw’s entering class arrived this fall, it included a record number of international students. The University will continue to work to attract even more qualified international students who will enrich the campus community in many ways. Perhaps the Board of Trustees’ most crucial responsibility is the search to select DePauw’s 19th president. As you know, President Bob Bottoms announced in April his plan to retire and become Chancellor of the University. I want to thank Bob for his extraordinary service as president since 1986. I know DePauw will continue to benefit from his service as chancellor and in providing leadership for the Janet Prindle Institute for Ethics. There is no doubt that DePauw is poised to attract the best possible presidential candidates because Bob has so solidly established DePauw as a leading national liberal arts university. Because the presidential selection process is important for the entire University community, a link – titled Presidential Search – was created on DePauw’s Web site to inform alumni and others about the status of the presidential search. I also encourage you to use the Web site to share your views and advice with us as we move forward to identify the University’s next leader. That kind of alumni support has always been a strength of DePauw University. The continuing devotion and support of alumni was evident among those who attended Alumni Reunion Weekend, received updates about the University and reconnected with classmates. Thank you for all the ways in which you support DePauw. Together, we will build upon DePauw’s strengths and provide even greater opportunities for future generations of DePauw students and alumni. – R. David Hoover ’67

CLASS NOTES

DEPAUW PROFILE

DePauw and Greek traditions merge for John W. Busey ’61.


Pursue service to others and uncommon success, graduates told 514 receive degrees at 168th commencement The 514 graduates at DePauw’s 168th commencement on May 20 were encouraged to pursue fulfilling lives of service to others and uncommon success. “DePauw University provided me with a foundation for a life of service,” Karen Koning AbuZayd ’63, commissioner-general of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) and an under-secretary-general to the United Nations, told graduates and their families. “The DePauw environment gave me a thirst for knowledge, along with a penchant to question conventional wisdom with healthy skepticism. It was here on this campus that the universally powerful precept about treating all human beings with genuine respect was confirmed for me.” From her base in Gaza, AbuZayd helps to oversee education, health and social services, and micro-enterprise programs for 4.3 million Palestinian refugees. Since September 2000, her work has concentrated on providing emergency assistance to, and generating employment for, victims of the crisis in the occupied Palestinian territory. Before joining UNRWA, AbuZayd worked for the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) for 19 years.

“DePauw University provided me with a foundation for a life of service.”

– Karen Koning AbuZayd ’63


News of the University She began her humanitarian career in Sudan in 1981, working with Ugandan, Chadian and Ethiopian refugees fleeing from war and famine. She moved to Namibia in 1989 to help coordinate the return of apartheid-era refugees, and a year later went to Sierra Leone to head the UNHCR office in Freetown, initiating an emergency response to settle 100,000 Liberians. From 1991-93 in UNHCR’s Geneva headquarters, AbuZayd directed the South African repatriation operation and the Kenya-Somalia cross-border operation. AbuZayd, who received a bachelor’s degree in nursing from DePauw, related to graduates how gratifying her career has been by “putting human rights and humanitarian principles into practice” to meet the needs of individuals. “I recognize that each of you will follow your own individual path. I do not expect to recruit all of you to the world of humanitarian action, or of multilateralism,” she said. “I simply want to share with you the deep personal satisfaction I’ve found in working with those who are among the most vulnerable populations in the world today.” DePauw presented AbuZayd the McNaughton Medal for Public Service. John McNaughton graduated from DePauw in 1942, served in the U.S. Navy during World War II and earned a degree from the Harvard University School of Law, where he later taught. He was assistant secretary of defense for international security affairs and had just been appointed Secretary of the Navy when he, his wife and one son died in a tragic air crash on July 19, 1967. Elisabeth “Bess” W. Evans, recipient of the Walker Cup, which recognizes the senior student judged to have contributed the most to the University during his or her four years at DePauw, spoke of the uncommon opportunities she and her classmates had as students and now have as alumni. She recalled hearing, as a prospective student, about the “uncommon success” of DePauw alumni, including best-selling authors, political leaders and others. “But over the past four years of discussion and Elisabeth “Bess” W. dialogue, I’ve discovered that uncommon success Evans doesn’t just live in Pulitzer Prizes or high-held offices,” said Evans, a double major in communication and sociology. “Uncommon success instead is found within the words that we speak, the lining of our lives. It comes in the way we make our choices, the way we treat others, the way we express our passions. It comes in how we have formed our opinions in these dialogues here, but more importantly, it now comes in how we act on these opinions.” She challenged her fellow graduates: “We must live our uncommon

success and not just discuss it. May your uncommon success truly change the world, or at least the world of those around you.” The full text of her Walker Cup address is printed on page four. Two distinguished alumni – Robert M. Steele ’69, the Nelson Poynter Scholar for Journalism Values and senior faculty in ethics at the Poynter Institute for Media Studies, and William F. Welch ’40, an attorney who has practiced primarily in corporate, banking and public utility law and is of counsel to Bingham McHale LLP – were awarded honorary degrees. Steele, an internationally known ethicist, noted, “DePauw has no major in journalism, but dozens of our graduates have gone on to exemplary careers as journalists, and I accept this honorary degree today with great respect for them and their contributions. I hope that some of you in the Class of 2007 become the journalists of the next generation.” Steele received a Doctor of Journalism degree. Welch recalled that on the day he and his classmates received diplomas from DePauw, France fell to Germany and Hitler’s reach was expanding. “The world has changed in many ways since 1940, technologically for certain. And yet, in many ways it is much the same,” he said. Referring to today’s world crises, he expressed confidence in the graduates. “You will work it out. As a matter of fact, the whole world depends upon you to do so.” Welch received a Doctor of Laws degree. Two retiring faculty members, who represented 75 years of teaching at DePauw, also were recognized: James S. Rambo, Laurel H. Turk Professor of Modern Languages (Spanish and Portuguese), taught at DePauw since 1966, and Carl P. Singer, professor of computer science, taught at DePauw since 1973.

First and foremost, allow me to extend my congratulations to the Class of 2007. It truly is a great achievement to be sitting in these seats on East College lawn, and it has been a pleasure – and very fun – getting to know you all. In our last four years, we have had many dynamic experiences. From long nights in the library to long nights when we should have been in the library, from trips around the world to trips around campus, we have had four years filled with a lot of learning and a lot of wonderful memories. One thing that I think is quite unique about DePauw is the dialogue that we engage in here. In our four years, we have begun lifelong conversations regarding important issues. We have discussed ethics in our lives and in our actions regarding nature, food and Greek life. We have talked about the embracing of different ideas and different expressions as they pertain to art and free speech. We have expressed our views in open forums about celebration of diversity and a lack of tolerance for intolerance. We have debated about the covenant. We have engaged in conversations about issues of sexual assault on and off campus. We have expressed our views on war and peace. We have talked about many issues. We have talked a lot. One thing that we specifically hear and say around here a great deal is “uncommon success,” and I have never stopped to think about what uncommon success really means. As a prospective student, I walked through the academic quad and heard of DePauw graduates who went on to be CEOs, elected officials, famous authors. This was the uncommon success that DePauw would afford me someday. But over the past four years of discussion and dialogue, I have discovered that uncommon success doesn’t just live in Pulitzer Prizes or high-held offices. Uncommon success instead is found within the words that we speak, the lining of our lives. It comes in the way we make our choices, the way we treat others, the way we express our passions. It comes in how we have formed our opinions in these dialogues; but more importantly, it now comes in how we act on these opinions.

here. More than most classes, we have put our words into action and created real change. But now we must leave the island, whether we like it or not. With us, among our trash-bags full of DePauw sweatshirts, philanthropy T-shirts, books we couldn’t sell back to Fine Print and graded midterm papers, we will also find the opportunity and the burden of uncommon success. We are charged as we drive away from the square with a call to action. After four years of talking the talk as they say, it appears it is time to walk the walk. We formed our ideas, discussed our opinions and found our passions. Now, we have to live these ideas, opinions and passions on a much bigger island. Walker Percy, a novelist, once wrote that the hardest thing in life is to get through an ordinary Wednesday afternoon. It is what we do with our lives on these Wednesday afternoons that is where most of our uncommon success will live. On some of these afternoons, we will sit on our couches, we will sit in our cubicles, we will sit in our present. Uncommon success begs the opposite, challenging us to take what we have gained here and give it back to the world. Robert Greenleaf, a leadership guru, I believe explains it best. He says, “In the end, each man builds his own solid ground to stand on – and stands alone.” We have the tools to build our solid ground on which we believe we want to stand, and now we must build it. He continues to explain: If you have a dream deferred, bring it to life by beginning to live it – no matter how discouraging the circumstances may be. If you end up in middle age an uncreative, crusty reactionary – the kind of person your generation complains about, it will probably be because you chose not to allow the idealism that is so characteristic of your present age to operate. We leave DePauw with a mind full of ideas, a soul full of energy – after a few days of post-graduation sleep, of course – and a world to change. Uncommon success allows us to name what makes us different than the average college graduate of 2007. It is a gift, but it is a challenge.

DePauw has given us the privilege of uncommon success, allowing us to talk it out for the last four years. When I say privilege, I mean just that. Sometimes I forget that although we have worked extremely hard in order to be sitting in these chairs today, a college education is a privilege, and a DePauw education is a great gift. In many ways, we have acknowledged this by expressing ourselves in more than just our words, taking advantage of the opportunity that we have been given

We must live our uncommon success and not just discuss it. We must do justice to the four years of dialogue that the classrooms of Asbury, the tables at the Hub, and the lounges in our living units have afforded us. Congratulations to the Class of 2007, and, although I promised several professors I wouldn’t use any clichés, may your uncommon success change the world, or at least the world of those around you. It has been an honor talking and living and learning with all of you. Thank you.


News of the University Trustees approve new housing standards and Greek support New housing standards for all living units at DePauw – both Greek and University-owned – were approved by the University’s Board of Trustees at its meeting on April 20. Subject to Internal Revenue Service approval, the trustees also voted to initiate a voluntary program through which the University will invest up to $6 million to help qualifying living units comply with the new regulations. President Robert G. Bottoms said, “These standards are important because they apply to all students and will help ensure safety no matter where a student chooses to live.” Trustees also unanimously adopted a resolution supporting the vitality of DePauw’s unique Greek system and its important responsibilities within the University’s learning community. “We owe a debt of gratitude to President Bottoms for his outstanding leadership in the process that has rebuilt trust and bridges that will serve us well in the future,” R. Lee Wilson ’76, chairman of the Trustees’ Greek Committee, said. Key elements of the initiatives approved by the trustees include: • New housing standards: A new set of standards for Greek and University-owned housing outlines high but reasonable levels for health and safety (particularly fire safety) issues that will be implemented by working closely with the newly formed Greek Life Advisory Council. Projected cost of compliance is $6 million ($5 million for Greek units; $1 million for DePauw-owned housing). • Voluntary Greek support program: Subject to IRS approval, a new program provides financial support options, which can be tailored to the needs of individual Greek chapters that require assistance in meeting the new standards. Possibilities include grants, loans and other

options, depending upon chapter needs and desires. Such support is voluntary, and chapters must demonstrate financial viability or have at least 80-percent occupancy (or a plan to achieve that level in a reasonable amount of time) for them to be eligible to receive grants and loans. DePauw will also accept tax-deductible gifts on behalf of Greek houses as they raise funds for upgrades and ongoing maintenance. • Trustees’ Greek support resolution: Trustees unanimously adopted a support resolution stressing both the valuable role and important responsibilities of the Greek system as members of the University learning community. The resolution is printed below. • Endorsement of president’s recommendations: The board also heard and endorsed a report about the ongoing efforts designed to improve the vitality of the Greek system, including the hiring of three new staff members; reviewing the timing of rush and recruitment; making the recruitment process less formal; and working with the Coalition for a Responsible Community to curb high-risk drinking. The trustees’ votes continued a process that began at the spring 2006 board meeting, when a Greek Fact-Finding Commission was created. That panel – consisting of DePauw alumni, students, faculty members and administrators – delivered a report to President Bottoms in September 2006. President Bottoms initiated a series of campus conversations about the Greek system, and in October, a Trustees’ Greek Committee was formed to review the fact-finding document and make recommendations. There was further discussion at the board’s January retreat. Read more about efforts to strengthen DePauw’s Greek system at www.depauw.edu/univ/greekfacts.

Trustee support resolution for Greek system DePauw University educates leaders who make a positive difference in the communities where they live and work. We are first and foremost a community of students, professors, alumni and administrators dedicated to learning. The Greek system within DePauw’s community is part of our unique heritage and is integral to our culture. The Greek system provides housing, leadership opportunities, social activities and alumni engagement that support our learning mission. We acknowledge these important contributions and recognize the Greek system as a valuable part of our community. Community membership comes with significant responsibilities to support its learning mission and DePauw’s goals: • To provide an outstanding living and learning environment • To prepare students to make a positive difference in the world • To cultivate alumni loyalty through lifelong engagement We the Trustees of DePauw University reaffirm our organizational, financial and personal support for the vitality of our unique Greek system and its important role in our university learning community.

News of the University Steve and Michelle Trulaske International Scholarship Fund will support international studies at DePauw Major gift will underwrite at least 30 off-campus study experiences each year

A major gift from Steven L. Trulaske ’79 and his wife, Michelle, will underwrite the semester- or summer-long, off-campus study experiences of at least 30 upperclass students each year through the Steve and Michelle Trulaske International Scholarship Fund, in addition to supporting at least 20 first-year students in a new DePauw-Ecuador Summer Program. “By making this gift, Michelle and I are affirming our belief that DePauw’s long-term Steven L. Trulaske strategic goal of internationalizing the University will produce future graduates who can contribute even more to our global society,” Steve Trulaske, a member of DePauw’s Board of Trustees, said. “Beyond being an investment in young people and the University, it is a pledge to create greater understanding among students of the world in which they will live and work, and we trust, change for the better.” “DePauw’s goal of becoming an increasingly international university takes a large step forward, thanks to the generosity of Steve and Michelle Trulaske,” President Robert G. Bottoms said. “Now, students who desire to participate in these two programs will be eligible for significant scholarship assistance. The Trulaskes are opening the doors to a world of opportunity for DePauw students, now and for generations to come.” Open to students who are enrolled to enter the University in the fall, the DePauw-Ecuador Summer Program – which began this summer – offers an intensive, five-week experience in Spanish language immersion, cultural awareness and international service. Participants (primarily first-generation students with no previous international experience) will spend three weeks on the DePauw campus, then two weeks in Quito, Ecuador. The program is designed to acquaint students with the dynamic global community and the importance of dealing effectively in multinational environments. “I believe the program has great potential to serve as a valuable re-

for these efforts and work to make a difference in others’ lives.” Niles reports that 80 admitted students applied for the program’s 20 spots in its inaugural year, “a clear indicator that this unique experience is of great interest to young scholars.” “The DePauw Ecuador Summer Program allows us to expose students to two transformative arenas for personal development – service and international study – at the very beginning of a student’s DePauw experience,” said Robert P. Hershberger, professor of modern languages (Spanish), who led the first program from June 25 to Aug. 1. “With this program, we are also immersing students in the heart of the University’s strategic initiatives of globalization and ethics. We couldn’t ask for a better beginning for our students and are delighted that funding this program acknowledges the real-world value of Spanish. With DePauw’s growing emphasis on globalization, we are excited to offer a means to allow more of our students an opportunity to embrace an international perspective.” The Trulaskes’ gift also will support students who wish to study in Segovia, Spain, for a fall or spring semester, or a summer term to improve their language skills and gain an understanding of Spain’s literature, art and history, as well as its emerging role in the European Union. Applicants must have completed a 300-level course in Spanish. “I believe this is one of few programs that affords students a rare opportunity to leave the life of a typical American and experience the life of a typical Segovian,” noted Kate Knaul, director of the Center for International and Experiential Education. “The quality of the program staff, the access to Segovians – both in and out of class – and the opportunities to truly experience the language and culture will greatly enhance our students’ cultural and linguistic proficiency. This kind of program will allow DePauw to graduate students who are even more capable of living and working in multiple cultural contexts.” DePauw plans to add other international programs in the future to

cruitment tool for the Office of Admission, as it provides an exceptional opportunity for students to gain international exposure – and a taste of campus life – even prior to the start of their first semester,” Stefanie Niles, vice president for admission and financial aid, explained. “With its strong tradition of community service opportunities and initiatives, the University attracts those students who are drawn to serving others and reaching out to provide assistance to those in need. The Ecuador Summer Program is yet another way in which students can find an outlet

those supported by the scholarship fund. The total of 50 additional students gaining international experiences through the Trulaskes’ generosity brings DePauw close to its goal of increasing the percentage of graduating seniors with an international experience from the previous level of 60 percent to 75 percent. DePauw continues to be among the nation’s top colleges and universities for the percentage of students who study abroad, according to the Open Doors 2006 report.


News of the University DePauw’s Liz Bondi is NCAA Division III Woman Athlete of the Year National champion in tennis and basketball Following a year in which she won an individual national championship in tennis and honors as an all-American forward on DePauw’s national championship basketball team, senior Liz Bondi was named the Honda Division III Collegiate Woman Athlete of the Year. The recognition was based on the results of national balloting among NCAA Division III schools as part of the Collegiate Women Sports Awards program, now in its 31st year. Bondi received the award at a ceremony at Columbia University in New York City on June 25. “It’s an incredible honor to be selected as the Division III Athlete of the Year,” Bondi said. “I was fortunate to win an individual national tennis championship and also be part of a basketball team that won our school’s first national team title. Without my coaches, Scott Riggle and Kris Huffman (tennis and basketball, respectively), I couldn’t have reached these levels and certainly couldn’t have won this award.” Bondi was nominated in women’s tennis after capturing the NCAA Division III singles championship and earning Senior of the Year honors from the Intercollegiate Tennis Association. She finished her tennis career as a four-time all-America selection in both singles and doubles. She had a 124-10 record in singles play and went 119-15 in doubles during her DePauw career. In addition to her outstanding tennis career, Bondi was the leading scorer and rebounder on this year’s basketball squad, the first national championship team in the University’s history. The Kodak/Women’s Basketball Coaches Association First Team All-America choice was also named most outstanding player at the Division III Women’s Basketball finals. American Honda Motor Co., Inc. sponsors the Collegiate Women Sports Awards Program.

News of the University

Prindle institute brings visiting scholar to campus Alyssa Bernstein, assistant professor of philosophy at Ohio University, is the first recipient of the Nancy Schaenen Visiting Scholar Award for residency at DePauw’s Janet Prindle Institute for Ethics during 200708. While at DePauw, Bernstein will write a book on contemporary philosophical conceptions of human rights, focusing on John Rawls’s Law of Peoples and its main competitors. “I am honored, thrilled, and delighted to receive the Nancy Schaenen Visiting Scholar Award,” Bernstein said. “The prospect of working on my book about human rights and global justice while taking part in the activities of DePauw’s Janet Prindle Institute for Ethics greatly appeals to me. I anticipate that I will enjoy as well as benefit from discussing my work with interested students as well as faculty colleagues at the Institute, at the philosophy department, and in the broader DePauw intellectual community.” Before joining the faculty of Ohio University, Bernstein was a Fellow of the Carr Center for Human Rights Policy at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government. Her main areas of research and writing are human rights, global justice, social contract theory (contractarianism and contractualism) and Kant’s ethics and political philosophy. Bernstein has a Ph.D. in philosophy from Harvard, where she held a Mellon Fellowship in the Humanities and was a Graduate Fellow at the

Harvard Center for Ethics. Prior to Harvard, she spent a year as a Fulbright Scholar in Jerusalem studying Judaism, Islam and Christianity. John K. Roth serves as the Robert and Carolyn Frederick Distinguished Visiting Professor of Ethics at DePauw during 2007-08. Roth is the Edward J. Sexton Professor Emeritus of Philosophy at Claremont McKenna College, where he is the founding director of the Center for the Study of the Holocaust, Genocide, and Human Rights. He also serves on the faculty of Claremont Graduate University. “Dr. Bernstein will be an exceptional complement to Dr. John Roth, and in tandem they will provide a richness of outside ideas and perspectives that will enliven the first year of programs at the Janet Prindle Institute for Ethics,” Neal B. Abraham, executive vice president of DePauw, said. “Her educational and scholarly background and her teaching and research interests will be valuable to many students and faculty members interested in social justice ethical issues. We are particularly grateful to the Schaenens for providing the generous support for this position, which attracted a pool of highly qualified applicants from across the nation.” A gift from Janet W. Prindle ’58 is funding construction of the Janet Prindle Institute for Ethics to enhance teaching, learning and research in ethics at DePauw. The institute is located within the DePauw University Nature Park.

Fulbright grants are designed to increase mutual understanding among nations through educational and cultural exchange while serving as a catalyst for long-term leadership development. Jeyson H. Florez, an economics major and Posse Scholar from Chicago, will spend a year researching wealth distribution and poverty in Costa Rica. At DePauw, Florez participated in two Winter Term in Service projects in Central America. In January 2006, he was part of a student team in San Antonio de Guacimal, Costa Rica, that picked coffee beans with community members, and in January 2007 he was on a team that assisted with construction and tutoring projects in Belize.

He was editor-in-chief of A Midwestern Review, DePauw’s arts and literature magazine. Nishita Trisal will spend a year in Indonesia teaching English to young people. Indonesia is the world’s largest Muslim nation, and she hopes to learn more about building bridges that can connect people of different faiths. Trisal, who immigrated to the United States at age 8, made several trips to India while a DePauw student. A communication major, she traveled to Kashmir – a site of militant attacks – in summer 2006. During three weeks in Srinagar and surrounding areas, she conducted ethnographic research for the Center for Dialogue and Reconciliation, a non-governmental organization that works on conflict resolution and peace education. The Institute of International Education, in cooperation with the U.S. Department of State and the J. William Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board, administers the competition, which has provided future American leaders with an unparalleled opportunity to study, conduct research and teach in other nations for six decades.

Teach for America accepts record number of DePauw students A record 56 seniors in the Class of 2007 applied to participate in Teach for America, the national corps of outstanding recent college graduates of all academic majors who commit two years to teach in urban and rural public schools. Of DePauw’s applicants, 19 were accepted and 15 will join the corps – also both records. The acceptance rate for DePauw students – 33.9 percent this year – is well above the national average, which was 17 percent last year. “This shows that DePauw graduates have been highly successful in the Teach for America interview process,” said Sara Kaufman, Teach

for America recruitment associate in Washington, D.C. “We anticipate that in the coming years we will see increased interest among DePauw’s most outstanding seniors.” Since 2003, the number of DePauw students applying to Teach for America has doubled. “The 19 DePauw graduates who were accepted into Teach for America this year had an average grade point average of 3.6. This exceptional group includes varsity athletes, presidents of student groups such as College Democrats and the Committee for Latino Concerns, and depauw.year1 mentors,” Kaufman noted.

DePauw is one of Top 5 Best Values in Private Liberal Arts Schools DePauw University is among the Top 5 Best Values in Private Liberal Arts Schools, according to Consumers Digest. In its June issue, the magazine lists the 100 best values in American higher education. DePauw is ranked fourth among private liberal arts colleges. The rankings are based on attributes that validate or define the institutions’ academic prowess factored against annual cost of tuition, room and board.

Book again cites DePauw as a best value college Students who graduate from DePauw “will leave with a strong liberal arts education and will have endured a challenging, heavy workload,” according to America’s Best Value Colleges: 2008 Edition. The book, published by the Princeton Review, again lists DePauw as one of 165 colleges offering excellent academics, generous financial aid packages and relatively low costs. For a second consecutive year, DePauw’s historic East College is pictured on the cover of the publication, which cites the University’s demanding academics and highly selective admission standards. The editors note “DePauw is especially strong in the area of merit-based awards.”

Relay for Life raises more than $217,000 The 2007 Putnam County Relay for Life, an annual student-directed event, set several records while raising more than $217,000 to fight against cancer.

Recent Words Arthur B. Evans, professor of modern languages (French), editor, with Stanford L. Luce, translator, The Kip Brothers (Wesleyan University Press – ISBN: 0-8195-6704-3). This is the first English translation of Jules Verne’s travelogue-detective story, The Kip Brothers, originally published in French in 1902. It is not the typical science-fiction tale with daring heroes exploring a far-flung corner of the world with sophisticated technology. Rather, it is an enthralling detective story of two brothers who are first castaways in the South Seas, and later rescued but entangled in a mutiny and the murder of a ship’s captain. Evans is the series editor of Wesleyan’s Early Classics of Science Fiction series. He has been called America’s most prominent Jules Verne scholar by Forbes magazine. Vera M. Kierstead-Farber ’36, America Is My Country (Vantage Press, Inc. – ISBN 978-0-533-15643-6). In this third and final installment of the “Jamie” series, Kierstead-Farber meticulously recreates a crucial period in American history through the eyes of the fearless, ambitious and high-spirited young man (no longer a boy), Jamie Bacon. It is 1811, and tensions between the fledgling American states and the angry English empire are mounting. Jamie plans an exciting and perilous high-stakes trek that leads him to – among other places – the Falls of the Cumberland and to the decisive Battle of New Orleans, where he encounters Major General Andrew Jackson. Eventually, Jamie’s dreams are realized when he travels to Marion County (Ind.) and he becomes a pioneer. This is an engrossing adventure novel, historically accurate in detail that revisits our rich heritage. Beth Felker Jones ’98, Marks of His Wounds, Gender Politics and Bodily Resurrection (Oxford University Press – ISBN: 978-0-19-530981-2). “I articulate a Christian theology of human embodiment in light of both resurrection doctrine and feminist political concerns,” Jones writes in the introduction. It is a central tenet of Christian theology that we will be resurrected in our bodies on the last day, but we have been conditioned to think of salvation as being about anything but the body, she argues. Historically, some theologians have denigrated the body as an obstacle to sanctification, and this notion is deeply problematic for feminist ethics, which centers on embodiment. Among the people Jones thanks for supporting her efforts to write the book is W. Fred Lamar, former DePauw University chaplain. Jones is an assistant professor of Bible and religion at Huntington University. Terry R. Myers ’87, Mary Heilmann: Save the Last Dance for Me (Afterall Books – ISBN: 978-1-84638-031-0). One of the most important abstract painters of her generation, Mary Heilmann created canvases that are vivid, amusing and characteristically fluid. Her 1979 painting, Save the Last Dance for Me, marks a shift in her perspective, and the artist noted that this painting “came from a different place.” She began to understand that the “choices in the work depended more on content for their meaning.” Although outwardly it seems to be a simple, black-and-pink painting, Myers explains the many twists of plot and the changes in character in this painting’s ever-changing narrative. Myers explores the development of Heilmann’s work and how her work continues to engage us psychologically, sensually and socially. Myers is a lecturer, critic and independent curator living in Los Angeles. Daniel E. Shannon, Distinguished Professor and professor and chair of philosophy, and Steven V. Hicks, editors, The Challenges of Globalization: Rethinking Nature, Culture, and Freedom (Blackwell Publishing – ISBN 978-1-4051-7356-8). These essays, selected from the Sixth World Congress of the International Society for Universal Dialogue, held in 2005

Recent Words in Helsinki, Finland, are based on the idea that 21st-century civilization faces serious global challenges that necessitate the need to rethink our views about nature, culture and freedom in an age of increased globalization. Topics are divided into five parts – peace, global justice, international law and human rights, cultural relativism and eco-terrorism – and address how wide-ranging ethical action is necessary in order to overcome repressive social, political and cultural obstacles. Thomas B. Shearman III ’79, Surviving Rita: Hope Amid Ruin in Southwest Louisiana ((American American Press Press). ). In the early-morning darkness of Saturday, Sept. 24, 2005, Hurricane Rita slammed into Cameron Parish, causing one of the biggest natural disasters in Louisiana history. Compiled from photographs taken for the American Press newspaper – noted for its news coverage, writing and design – this book captures the incredible devastation and provides a fuller understanding of what happened. It is a visual record of the stories about how the people of Southwest Louisiana endured Hurricane Rita, their resilience and how they rebuilt their shattered lives. Shearman is the publisher of American Press in Lake Charles, La.

Greek Life Advisory Council strives to strengthen DePauw’s Greek system The Greek Life Advisory Council, an alumni-driven effort to strengthen the Greek system at DePauw, is intended to help the University and its Greek system continue to be leaders among colleges and universities nationally. “The results of the Greek Fact-Finding Commission and DePauw President Robert G. Bottoms’ personal interest in strengthening the DePauw Greek system allowed alumni to formalize a group that has been meeting informally for years. At this critical time for DePauw’s Greek system, alumni saw a great opportunity and worked to organize the Greek Life Advisory Council,” said Lance A. DeNardin ’86, GLAC chair. All Greek-letter organizations that DePauw currently recognizes and that have undergraduate members at DePauw are eligible for GLAC membership, including members of organizations in chapter houses or University-owned housing. GLAC also is open to Greek-letter organizations that have in the past had undergraduate members and currently have alumni members at DePauw. Each member organization may designate a maximum of two representatives to the GLAC Assembly. “When viewed nationally, Greek systems on college campuses are under close scrutiny,” DeNardin explained. “What GLAC and the DePauw administration are doing is demonstrating that the DePauw experience has been and always will continue to be the best available in the United States. “The Greek alumni serving on the GLAC are uniquely situated and capable of advising the

Alumni Programs University on topics related to recruitment, new member education, alcohol abuse on campus, and housing – including health and safety issues. These issues are common President Robert G. Bottoms with Lance to most campuses A. DeNardin ’86 in America today.” Cooperative efforts among the GLAC, DePauw administrators and Board of Trustees has already produced a significant result. At its April 2007 meeting, the DePauw board approved new Housing Standards, which were developed by GLAC and the DePauw administration. The standards will be applied consistently for students in University-owned housing and Greek living units. In addition, the board voted to fund $5 million in health, safety and security improvements within the Greek living units (subject to approval by the U.S. Internal Revenue Service). The GLAC is led by an executive committee of five alumni volunteers selected by the Assembly representatives from their membership. Several committees, comprised of Assembly representatives and other Greek alumni volunteers, will address specific issues affecting Greek life at DePauw. (A list of GLAC Assembly representatives accompanies this story.) “The new relationship among the Greek alumni, DePauw administration and faculty members, and the Greek national/international organizations will be defined in large part by those alumni serving on the GLAC Assembly and committees,” DeNardin said. “So the GLAC Executive Committee members encourage all our DePauw Greek organizations – past and present, residential and non-residential – to engage their alumni and encourage them to serve on GLAC committees and work in a positive way with their undergraduate members.” Alumni interested in becoming active in GLAC should contact their Greek organization representative. If your Greek-letter organization is not yet a member, contact GLAC Chair DeNardin at GLAC@depauw.edu or Lisa Hollander, DePauw vice president of development and alumni relations, at 877-658-2586.
