A commitment to undergraduate teaching in a forward-thinking and innovative context is essential. DePauw is committed to diversity in its student body, faculty, staff, and curriculum. The DePauw University School of Music recently launched the 21st-Century Musician (21CM) Initiative, a complete reimagining of the skills, tools and experiences necessary to create musicians of the future instead of the past; for example, flexible, entrepreneurial musicians who find diverse musical venues and outlets in addition to traditional performance spaces, develop new audiences, and utilize their music innovatively to impact and strengthen communities. Our program is the only required multi-course entrepreneurial music curriculum in the country. With a focus on creating musicians of the future instead of the past, this is an exciting time in the 133-year history of the school. Located in Greencastle, Indiana, about a 45-minute drive west of Indianapolis, DePauw is also home to a 520-acre nature park - which includes at least 9 miles of trails - and Historic East College, built in 1877, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
