DePauw University was founded in 1837 by the Methodist church as an ecumenical institution of national statute, “forever to be conducted on the most liberal principles, accessible to all denominations and designed for the benefit of our citizens in general.” Its core values, which included integrity, diversity and intellect, united the community from day one of its conception. It’s founding name, Indiana Asbury University, paid tribute to Francis Asbury - the first American bishop of the Methodist Episcopal Church. The community of Greencastle successfully raised $25,000 to establish the college in its frontier village. Three years later, the college inaugurated friend and counselor of Abraham Lincoln, Matthew Simpson, as its first president, and celebrated its first class of graduates.
