The relationship between DePauw faculty and their students is unparalleled. Undergraduates can get the unique experience of collaborating closely with their faculty and advisors through student-faculty research projects. The Prindle Institute for Ethics provides two funds to nurture and support student and faculty collaborative research. For further information on applying for this funding, please contact Linda Clute (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Sieg and Dunlap Student Research Assistants in Ethics Award
Funded by the Lois and Nellie Sieg and Frank G. and Gertrude Dunlap Collaborative Research Fund for Ethics, the Sieg and Dunlap scholars work in collaboration with the Prindle Institute’s Frederick Visiting Professor of Ethics or the Schaenen Scholar. Students also work with faculty members doing projects funded by the Prindle Institute. The Sieg and Dunlap Student Research Assistants in Ethics award was established by James S. LoPrete (’75) and Robert D. LoPrete (’86) to honor their grandfather, Bishop Edwin R. Garrison (’21).

Steele who joined DePauw’s administration in 2008 as associate dean of academic affairs and was appointed DePauw’s first director of sustainability. Neal B.
