The Launch of The Campaign for DePauw

At a kick-off celebration the evening of Oct. 3 on the lawn of historic East College, the President joined Campaign Co-Chairs Sarah R. Wallace ’76 and R. David Hoover ’67 along with approximately 300 alumni, faculty, staff, students and friends of the University to officially launch The Campaign for DePauw.

During the evening’s program, the National Campaign Committee announced that, as of the time of the formal launch, the University was approximately two-thirds of the way to its goal, with just over $200 million in campaign commitments made thus far.

“This campaign represents a specific opportunity for DePauw take its place among the nation’s great small colleges and Universities,” said Wallace, who recently completed her term as the first woman to chair the University’s Board of Trustees. “As alumni, this is a place that we love, a place that has shaped us. We have an opportunity, and an obligation, to ensure that DePauw’s combination of intellectual challenge and its legacy of preparing leaders remains available for students today and for generations to come.”

“At the very core of DePauw are students who are transformed through a combination of dedicated faculty, small classes, and countless opportunities for leadership,” added Hoover. “This campaign is about making investments today that will ensure that those opportunities remain at the core of the DePauw experience. And, of course, it is about ensuring this transformational form of education remains accessible to promising students, regardless of their family’s financial circumstance.”
