Time and history rarely present such an opportunity to help create, through the efforts of so many joined parties, the next great college town, a center of discussion, arts, and community in the State of Indiana.

With a focus on campus and community engagement, DePauw University is a strategic and financial partner in this effort.  The University has made significant investments in streetscaping, signage and bookstore development, as well as other long-term improvements to positively position our community and the campus.

With an engaged group of local partners at the helm, our unique and thriving community stands to become even better with the Stellar Communities grant. From businesses to civic organizations, entrepreneurs to volunteers, countless individuals are working everyday to make Stellar Communities projects a reality.

As partners, we realize that each of us is stronger when the other is at their best. The “Greencastle Effect” is more than community pride. It’s a commitment to making our community the finest it can be.
