The new Judson and Joyce Green Center for the Performing Arts

Major expansion and renovation will enhance teaching and learning in the arts
Construction is underway on a major expansion and renovation of DePauw’s 33-year-old Performing Arts Center, which is home to the School of Music and the Department of Communication and Theatre. The two areas offer majors that enroll nearly 25 percent of DePauw’s graduates each year (music performance, music education, musical arts, music business, communication and theatre). An alumni couple, Judson C. Green Jr. ’74 and Joyce Taglauer Green ’75, committed $15 million dollars as the lead gift for what will be a $29 million project. The new Judson and Joyce Green Center for the Performing Arts will encompass nearly 80,000 square feet of new space. “The Performing Arts Center has served DePauw well, but the needs of faculty members, students and performers have changed over the last 30 years,” Joyce Green said. “The renovated center will provide new functional spaces for learning, practicing and performing – and will include a recording studio. The project will also remedy the heating and cooling issues the building has struggled with for years. I’m confident the space will attract top students and faculty members who are interested in the performing arts and make our programs even stronger.” Joyce Green was a piano performance major at DePauw and is a past chair of the Washington C. DePauw Society. Judson Green, president and CEO of NAVTEQ Corporation, was an economics major and a music composition minor. He is a member of DePauw’s Board of Trustees and served as board chair from 2001-04. “The School of Music is a distinctive part of DePauw’s history,” explained Judson Green, who played jazz piano on weekends in Chicago during his college days to finance his education. “Through this gift, Joyce and I hope to ensure that future generations of DePauw students can enjoy the performing arts as part of their DePauw experience.”

The Judson and Joyce Green Center for the Performing Arts will feature the following:

• A 20,000-square-foot addition to the west of Kresge Auditorium will provide the School of Music with
new faculty offices that will double as teaching studios, practice rooms for individual students and small groups of performers, and purpose-built rehearsal spaces shared by band and orchestra, percussion, jazz, wind and chamber ensembles. There will be additional classrooms and instructional spaces for electronic keyboard instruction, music composition and recording technologies. Improvements will provide better sound quality for instruction, rehearsals and practicing. The purpose-built rehearsal spaces will free the performance venues (Kresge Auditorium and Thompson Recital Hall) for a wider variety of events, since they will be in less demand for regular instructional needs.

U N I V E R S I T Y • The communication and theatre department, which offers DePauw’s most popular major,
will gain classrooms and offices, a computer-aided design workshop, and expanded faculty and student gathering places. Improved classrooms will include DePauw’s first purposebuilt spaces for the teaching of acting and dance, and a new theater-style classroom will be suitable for rhetoric and debate as well as for film studies and screenings. Kerr Theater, DePauw’s blackbox experimental theater space, will be enlarged by 50 percent in the renovation.

• New lobbies will be created for Moore Theater and Kresge Auditorium, with improved
sound and light locks that will permit simultaneous use of both spaces and adequate spaces for the audience of either during intermission without disrupting activity in the other hall.

• A state-of-the-art recording studio will allow performance students to make master recordings of their repertoire and will provide facilities for training students in digital recording techniques.

• An expanded library space will provide improved support for print and recorded collections
of music, communication and theatre with improved listening areas and work stations.

• The project will include much-needed improvements in the temperature and climate
control systems throughout the building.

• Bowman Park and Walker Pond will be reconfigured.

Cleveland Johnson is interim dean of School of Music
Cleveland T. Johnson, professor of music, was appointed interim dean of the School of Music, effective Jan. 2, and he will serve in that capacity until the fall of 2007. The previous dean, Amy Lynn Barber, resigned in order to devote more time to her teaching and recording. “Professor Johnson has been a valuable member of the School of Music faculty since 1985, and he was the choice of his colleagues to serve in this important position as we field are his three-volume edition of previously unpublished organ works by the 17th-century Hamburg organist Heinrich Scheidemann and six compact disc recordings of Scheidemann’s organ music. He has begun to investigate the history of keyboard instruments in India, including the documentation of historic pipe organs there as well as the history of the indigenous Indian harmonium. In the classroom, Johnson is particularly interested in using technology to enhance his students’ classroom experience in the liberal arts tradition. His work has received grant support from the National Endowment for the Humanities, Lilly Foundation, Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, Thomas J. Watson Foundation, American Institute for Indian Studies and the Deutscher Akademischer Austauschdienst (Fulbright). Founded in 1884 and housed in the Performing Arts Center, the DePauw University School of Music is one of the oldest in the nation.

Professors Anne Harris and John Schlotterbeck receive Exemplary Teaching Award
Anne F. Harris, associate professor of art, and John T. Schlotterbeck, professor of history, are the 2005-06 recipients of the annual Exemplary Teaching Award. Given jointly by DePauw and the General Board of Higher Education of the United Methodist Church, the award recognizes faculty members who exemplify excellence in teaching, civility and concern for students and colleagues, commitment to value-centered education, and service to students, the institution and community. Harris, who joined the DePauw faculty in 1997, has created new courses, such as first-year seminars on “From the Holy Land to Graceland: Studies in Pilgrimage” and “Stolen!: Art Theft and Western Culture” as well as medieval art history courses on “Love and War in the Romanesque Era, 900-1200” and “Women and Medieval Art.” Her colleagues from other liberal arts colleges expressed their admiration for her contributions to recent meetings on the use of digital images in teaching. She also serves as the director of the Honor Scholar Program. Her students attest to the remarkable effectiveness she brings to classes. Harris inspires them to learn and to challenge themselves. “More than any other teacher I have known, Anne combines a rigorous understanding of her subject with passion,” noted a faculty colSchlotterbeck arrived at DePauw in 1978. He was promoted through the ranks, including to professor in 1993, and served the history department as chair for five years. He was previously recognized by the University for sustained excellence in teaching and service as a recipient of the Distinguished Professor Award in 2003-05. He is among the pioneers in the use of instructional technology at DePauw, and he is now a leader in a group of faculty colleagues exploring the possibility of a museum studies program at DePauw. “John is impressive and humbling in his dedication to and his respect for his students,” a colleague wrote. “He challenges them, but also provides them with the tools of success. Moreover, he always looks for the whole person. I am often amazed how much John knows about his students – not only which team they play on, or their hometowns, but also their interests beyond the classroom – family relationships, etc. This genuine interest in them and in their success makes him a sought-after adviser and teacher for many of our majors.” Another faculty member added, “Equally impressive, John continues to develop fascinating new courses that simultaneously draw on his expertise and expand his horizons. In sum, [he] is a DePauw treasure.” Previous recipients of the Exemplary Teaching Award are Tamara M. Beauboeuf, associate professor of education studies and sociology; Terri Bonebright, associate professor of psychology; Tom Chiarella, professor of English; John A. Dittmer, professor emeritus of history; J. David Field, professor of English; Robert P. Hershberger, associate professor of modern languages (Spanish); Craig T.

league. “She is certainly drawn by the beauty of art, but even more by a relentless curiosity to explore and understand. It is impossible to hear Anne discuss a painting or a sculpture without getting drawn into art as the gateway to a greater understanding of culture, history, religion and philosophy. Her thinking is, on a theoretical level, rigorous and sophisticated, and yet she manages to translate her thought process into a language that students can understand and be inspired by. On Winter Term trips and in the classroom, she – more than any other colleague I have worked with – shows students the attraction of living the life of the mind.”

Cinergy grant will support educational programs for the DePauw Nature Park
The Cinergy Foundation, the philanthropic arm of PSI Energy, Inc., awarded a $75,000 grant to support programs for DePauw University’s Nature Park. The grant will enable the University to create new educational opportunities for Indiana students and community groups on the 481-acre site. DePauw will offer high school students a week-long environmental science summer camp, which will be led by teams of DePauw faculty members and undergraduate science students. The grant also will provide for collaborations with middle school and high school students on research projects, Saturday science programs for school students, and opportunities for community groups to enjoy guided tours and other activities in the park. “What we see this nature park doing is becoming, really, a statewide resource so that teachers and students from around the state can come and be educated on the importance of the environment in one of the more beautiful natural settings, I think, in the state,” said Joe Hale, president of the Cinergy Foundation. Neal B. Abraham, executive vice president of the University, vice president for academic affairs and dean of the faculty, called the Cinergy Foundation’s support “a major endorsement for the Nature Park and its programs and DePauw’s goal of making community outreach a priority. It was our intention all along to add that as part of our programming, and so this allows us to do the things that link DePauw more closely to the region and to the community.” The DePauw Nature Park opened to the public in September 2004. It includes 10 miles of trails that wind through the property and along Big Walnut Creek, as well as outdoor classrooms and a small outdoor amphitheater. Two buildings are already open – the Manning Environmental Field Station and the Ian and Mimi Rolland Welcome and Activities Center. The Janet Prindle Institute for Ethics will be located in the Nature Park.

DePauw climbs in all five benchmarks in survey of student engagement
DePauw students have an experience that is significantly more challenging, stimulating, interactive and dynamic than students at peer institutions and the national average at all colleges and universities, according to the 2005 National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE). The seventh annual national study also finds that DePauw’s benchmark scores have all climbed since 2001. The NSSE measures five benchmarks: level of academic challenge, active and collaborative learning, student-faculty interaction, enriching educational experiences and supportive campus environment. DePauw placed in the top 10 percent of all participating schools in terms of level of academic challenge, student-faculty interaction and enriching educational experiences. Among other findings, the study noted: at institutions like DePauw, where faculty members use techniques such as class discussions and frequent feedback, students are more satisfied and more likely to interact with their teachers and peers. Also, the 54 percent of all first-year students who took a first-year seminar were more likely to use campus services, were more satisfied with college, and gained more in terms of

personal and social development. All new DePauw students participate in the University’s first-year experience called depauw.year1. Sponsored by The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching, the report is based on information from approximately 237,000 first-year and senior students at 528 four-year colleges and universities.

NSF grant supports continuation of summer student-faculty research
The National Science Foundation awarded a three-year grant of $203,370 for continued support of Research Experiences for Undergraduates, a summer student-faculty collaborative research program at DePauw. It is one of the longest-running NSF-funded programs in the country for student-faculty collaborative research projects. Dave A. Berque, professor of computer science, and Scott M. Thede, associate professor of computer science, will direct the program for students from DePauw and other colleges for the summers of 2006, 2007 and 2008. Other DePauw faculty members will participate in the summer programs as research project leaders and student research supervisors.

1940 alumnus recalls the days of big band jazz at DePauw
Editor: As a big band jazz buff, I was particularly interested to find in The Jazz State of Indiana that author Duncan Schiedt, Pittsboro, Ind., included an eight-page section about jazz emanating from bands at DePauw in the 1920-30s. I never realized that DePauw produced, as Schiedt avers, “such an astounding succession of fine campus bands, attracting players from all over the state and the nation.” As a member of the Class of 1940, I do remember one jazz band – that of Joe McCartney’s – playing for fraternity and sorority dances, as well as at the Double Decker, a popular campus hangout. My Phi Delt roommate, Lyman “Bud” Cherry, played trumpet with his band, and another brother, Gene Pennington, was an arranger. The author cites that the Methodist tradition forbade any dancing on the DePauw campus through the early 1920s, and that music being heard was only at parties and sorority serenades. I well recall our singing at these serenades on moonlit nights, but we never had a band to accompany us. In his comprehensive tome about Indiana jazz, Schiedt includes much material about Hoagy Carmichael and his days at Indiana University, Bloomington, as well as mention of Jimmy Cathcart, whose I.U. band played for our 1937 Phi Delta Theta spring formal dance. Jimmy and his brother, Dick, left Indiana for California and became nationally known jazz musicians. Since students were not allowed to have cars, we walked to greater downtown Greencastle to see a movie – at the Von Castle Theater. After a show, we would enjoy a thick milkshake at Fleenor’s Drug Store. I was surprised to learn that one DePauw band, Roy Wells’ Black and Gold Collegians, was often featured in the pit at the Von Castle. As a sign of the times, the photo of the Clair Hull DePauw band, circa 1929-30, courtesy of the author, shows the members wearing trench coats á la Humphrey Bogart. It must have been shot on a typical April day in Greencastle – during an era when collegiate men actually wore hats. The book cites that “Hull, of LaPorte, spent a lot of time by the piano at the Phi Delt house, practicing hot licks picked up from Bix Beiderbecke and Red Nichols recordings.” I recall the night Bob Crosby and his Bobcats, after playing a prom at Bowman Gymnasium, came over to the Phi Delt house and jammed until the wee hours. Legendary jazz pianist Bob Zurke accompanied equally legendary big band drummer Ray Bauduc, sans drums, who stroked his wire brushes on a floor lamp shade. As a freshman, I had to give up my bed to the 300-pound New Orleans clarinetist, Irving Fazola. The mattress was never quite the same. Another well-known big band played a DePauw dance: Ted Weems. I remember going early to Bowman Gymnasium before the dance to get autographs. Weems didn’t like the set-up and wanted the piano moved to the other end of the gym. I still have the photograph of the man who helped me move the piano as Weems asked us to do. I didn’t

dream at the time that my helper, a band vocalist and former barber, would eventually have his own long-running television show with the theme Dream Along with Me. It was the legendary Perry Como. I arrived in Greencastle one year after Benny Goodman set the country afire when ushering in the swing era at the Palomar Ballroom, Los Angeles, August 1935. It was Let’s Dance for America from then on. Back at the Phi Delta Theta house on Anderson St., Greencastle, this meant dancing with our dates on weekends in a dimly lit den to big band records on a RCA hi-fi player. When we danced to Tommy Dorsey’s all-time hit Marie, it was for us – just as the chorus sang out – living in a great big way! – William H. Smith ’40 Palm Desert, Calif.

Not grammar, punctuation or spelling, but the writing of “true things.” “The honest writer always seeks to avoid deception, always believes writing the truth is more important than proving a point.” Naparsteck is the book reviewer for the Salt Lake Tribune. Kerry E. Notestine ’79, Employment Law Trials: A Practical Guide (LexisNexis – ISBN: 0-8205-8373-1). Based on 20 years of Notestine’s experience trying employment cases, this book is designed to prepare the seasoned employment lawyer, junior litigation associate or personal injury lawyer for the unique aspects of trying an employment case. A companion CD-ROM contains the full text as well as full text of all cases referenced. Notestine is a shareholder/partner with Littler Mendelson, P.C., in Houston. Daniel J. Ritter ’54, a.k.a. God: Faith & Flexibility, The Strongest Bond (Xlibris – ISBN: 1-4134-9096-4). Ritter probes the relationship between faith and the Bible and renews his faith by rejecting the biblical claim of divine providence. He writes, “Whether we reach for understanding through the law, through Jesus or through Muhammad, we reach for the same understanding and the same Divine Presence.” Ritter is a retired Air Force officer, teacher, realtor and practicing, although unlicensed, metaphysician.

Securing Our Legacy
2006-2010 The Vision We are a distinguished university and proud family, nationally recognized for extraordinary effectiveness in linking liberal arts education with life’s work. DePauw intellectually challenges students and inspires them to lead and to serve in an increasingly diverse and rapidly changing world. The value of the DePauw experience is reflected in the remarkable loyalty and passion DePauw engenders and in the uncommon success of our graduates.

By Larry G. Anderson –Editor

D

ePauw University is launching a five-year strategic plan called Securing Our Legacy. The plan is based upon the premise that we – all of us in the DePauw community – have a responsibility to continue to strengthen DePauw as a


The Plan

leading national liberal arts university that prepares its students to make a positive difference in the world. That is our legacy.

What “legacy” did you receive from DePauw?
Whenever DePauw alumni get together, the conversation inevitably turns to reflections about how the DePauw experience has had a lifelong impact on their personal lives and careers. DePauw Magazine invites alumni to share stories and anecdotes about what you consider to be the “legacy” you received from DePauw. Depending upon space availability, DePauw Magazine will print as many “legacy” stories as possible in future issues. To share your DePauw “legacy,” send your letter to Larry Anderson, Editor, DePauw Magazine, 300 E. Seminary St., P.O. Box 37, Greencastle, IN 46135-0037 or send an e-mail to landersn@depauw.edu.

Led by the Strategic Planning Task Force of the Board of Trustees (see list of members on page 21), members of our community – trustees, administrators and faculty members – completed a strategic planning process to identify key initiatives that will build on DePauw’s historic strengths. This process connected those strengths with three major goals:

1.
To provide an outstanding learning and living environment that encourages

academic excellence and the formation of intellectual communities:
Through Academic Engagement
DePauw is building on a legacy of academic excellence and engagement in the learning process to increase student eagerness for intellectual development. We want to encourage students to spend more time reading, writing, and thinking to develop their skills; engaging fellow students and faculty members in discussion; and sustaining their commitment to their academic best. A cornerstone of the DePauw experience is a low student-to-faculty ratio (10-to-1 in 2005-06), which ensures our legacy of personalized interaction. Small first-year seminars foster the early academic engagement of our newest students. We then help every student take full advantage

of interaction with their professors and opportunities in research, independent projects, senior theses and internships. We are reaping the benefits of our significant investment in a highcaliber and greater number of faculty members and a commitment to maintaining salaries at a competitive level to retain them. The number of DePauw faculty members has grown from 167 in 1998-99 to 229 in 2005-06. “Academic engagement” further means that students integrate the rich variety of speakers, symposia, cultural and artistic opportunities available on campus with their coursework and scholarly interests. To ensure that we attract the kind of student who is prepared to capitalize on these opportunities, we will build on the tradition of the Rector and Holton Scholarships to attract the best high school graduates from throughout Indiana, across the country and around the world. (For students entering DePauw in fall 2005, the median high school class rank was in the top 9 percent.)

Resources needed to implement the strategic plan
In order to implement the plan for Securing Our Legacy, DePauw University, the Board of Trustees and administration will direct resources in strategic ways that align with the goals and initiatives within the plan. The development and alumni relations staff members of the University will work under the guidance of the Trustees’ Development and Alumni Relations Committee to meet the following goals: • Increase the Annual Fund from $4.5 million to $6.8 million in five years. • Add $80 million in new estate and life-income commitments in five years. • Continue work with individual donors interested in endowing scholarships, faculty and other positions, projects and other targeted needs. • Increase alumni participation in the Annual Fund from 36 percent to 44 percent in five years.

Through High Tech, High Touch
DePauw will sustain its national leadership role using new information and instructional technologies to augment the learning relationship between faculty members and students. We are recognized as a national model for “high tech, high touch” – using technology to support the classic strengths of a liberal arts education: critical thinking, speaking and writing. One of the University’s strengths has been to use technology to enhance traditional pedagogy. Our use of technology is intensely interpersonal – among students, among students and teachers, and in working together to communicate with others at a distance, including officials, speakers and students who are studying off campus. We give our students and faculty members access to the most effective teaching and learning technologies, and we teach them the skills required to succeed in a highly digital and technologically interconnected world. DePauw will continue to help students learn ways to seek reliable information, the skills to critically examine the information they find, and to appropriately apply technology in context.

Through the Creative and Performing Arts
DePauw’s legacy is one in which the liberal arts curriculum is complemented by a dynamic environment for the creative and performing arts. Part of what distinguishes DePauw is the richness that artistic endeavor and appreciation brings to our community and to the lives of our graduates. Superior programs in the creative and performing arts have produced artists, musicians, creative writers and generations of graduates whose lives were enriched by arts study at DePauw. Recent investments in additional teaching facilities, galleries and spaces constructed solely for the creation of art enhance each student’s opportunity for creative expression. The Richard E. Peeler Art Center and William Weston Clarke Emison Museum of Art provide uncommon opportunities for students and faculty members. We have tripled the number of creative writers among the faculty members – many of them award winners; we have doubled the number of faculty members in theatre and studio art; and we have expanded the faculty in the School of Music. Renovation of the Performing Arts Center, to be named the Judson and Joyce Green Center for the Performing Arts, is the next phase in strengthening our arts facilities. The center will be home to the School of Music and the Communication and Theatre department, two programs essential to sustaining a vibrant liberal arts community.

2.
To prepare students to make a positive difference in the diverse and

interconnected world in which they will live and work:
Through a Diverse Learning Community
We firmly believe that a variety of experiences and viewpoints adds to the richness of the intellectual fabric of our community; that is, we learn best in a community of diverse ideas, cultural backgrounds and perspectives. When students interact with a widely diverse group of peers and teachers, they acquire international and multicultural perspectives and decision-making skills essential to making a positive contribution to a diverse and global society. Therefore, we are redoubling our efforts to attract a student body that reflects the diversity of our world community and a faculty that does the same. Our vision is a university community that reflects more broadly and accurately the world in which DePauw graduates will live and work. At the same time, we are expanding our students’ global perspective by building on a legacy of off-campus study experiences. DePauw is a national model for facilitating study opportunities outside the United States for Winter Term, semester-long and yearlong experiences. We also are among the top colleges in the nation for our percentage of students who study abroad as part of their academic program. Many graduates report that Winter Term and off-campus study experiences are life-changing. The presence of international students has enriched DePauw for more than a century; students from Brazil and Japan enrolled at DePauw as early as the 1870s. We intend to increase the number of international students who pursue bachelor’s degrees at DePauw. The campus community values international perspectives and the cultural diversity that students from other countries bring, just as we value the opportunity to experience other cultures firsthand by studying away from campus.

Through Ethics and Moral Reflection
We want to expand opportunities to engage students in thoughtful, interdisciplinary discussions of the ethical challenges of life, work and citizenship. DePauw faculty members have traditionally asked students to consider larger societal issues in their studies. New program opportunities will enhance this inquiry. The Janet Prindle Institute for Ethics will foster thoughtful interdisciplinary examination of ethical issues, including questions of justice and policy, character, duty and responsibility. Preparation for citizenship and active participation in one’s community requires that students identify and analyze moral and ethical dimensions of issues that may be of personal, national or international importance. In addition to moral reflection, we encourage students to develop lifelong habits of community service and philanthropy to support making our world a better place.

For more information

The University recognizes that without alumni help, the remarkable progress DePauw has made so far simply would not have been possible. Given limited resources, alumni support must be credited for making DePauw values available to the next generation of DePauw students. DePauw encourages alumni to share their time and wisdom through a variety of programs that offer social interaction, educational opportunities and networking. Many alumni are actively involved with the University, attending programs in their local communities and returning to campus for special events and reunions. Future opportunities will be enhanced by efforts to expand DePauw Discourse, which invites alumni and friends, distinguished guests, faculty members and students to gather on campus to talk about important public issues and timely topics; foster professional networking; use technology such as streamed video webcasts on a wide variety of topics; strengthen regional programming for alumni, including to showcase faculty members as presenters at alumni events around the country; and invite alumni to participate in enriching travel programs. The University has and must continue to benefit from the generous support of alumni and friends who share their resources to strengthen DePauw.

Securing Our Legacy
Our goals for the next five years build on DePauw’s foundational strengths of fostering intellectual excellence, building community, valuing diversity and encouraging personal growth. We are extending the University’s history of academic quality using new and familiar tools to invigorate the learning environment. Opportunities for students and faculty and staff members are exceptional. Now is the time to advance our ambitious plans for improved academic engagement, new and exciting programs, and a first-rate physical plant to support DePauw’s tradition of educational leadership. This preparation and commitment is vital to Securing Our Legacy.
