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.

an under-secretary-general to the United Nations, told graduates and their families. “The DePauw

19 years.

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 head-
quarters, 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 Robert M. Steele ’69, President Robert G. Bottoms, Karen Koning

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.

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 cham-
pionship 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.

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 explor-
ing 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

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 ten-

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

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.

Heilmann created canvases that are vivid, amusing and characteristically fluid. Her 1979 paint-
ing, 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

Greek Life Advisory Council


strives to strengthen
DePauw’s Greek system GLAC
Current
The Greek Life Advisory Council, an alumni-driven effort to strengthen the Greek system at Members:
DePauw, is intended to help the University and its Greek system continue to be leaders among ΑΧΩ
colleges and universities nationally. ΑΦ
“The results of the Greek Fact-Finding Commission and DePauw President Robert G. Bot- ΔΓ
toms’ personal interest in strengthening the DePauw Greek system allowed alumni to formalize a ΔΖ
ΚΑΘ
group that has been meeting informally for years. At this critical time for DePauw’s Greek system,
ΚΚΓ
alumni saw a great opportunity and worked to organize the Greek Life Advisory Council,” said
ΠΒΦ
Lance A. DeNardin ’86, GLAC chair.

All Greek-letter organizations that DePauw currently recognizes and that have undergraduate
ΒΘΠ
members at DePauw are eligible for GLAC membership, including members of organizations ΔΧ
in chapter houses or University-owned housing. GLAC also is open to Greek-letter organiza- ΔΤΔ
tions that have in the past had undergraduate members and currently have alumni members at ΔΥ
DePauw. Each member organization may designate a maximum of two representatives to the ΛΧΑ
GLAC Assembly. ΦΔΘ
“When viewed nationally, Greek systems on college campuses are under close scrutiny,” ΦΓΔ
DeNardin explained. “What GLAC and the DePauw administration are doing is demonstrating ΦΚΨ
that the DePauw experience has been and always will continue to be the best available in the ΣΑΕ
United States. ΣΧ
