GREENCASTLE -

DePauw University has made several leadership appointments. Among them, the university has selected Deedie Dowdle to serve as vice president of marketing and communications, beginning September 3. 

Dowdle currently serves as associate vice president for university communications and marketing at Miami University in Ohio. She has also served in marketing and communications roles with Auburn University and Kennesaw State University.

"The addition of Deedie to the leadership team is key for moving DePauw into the 21st century in marketing and communications," said DePauw President Mark McCoy. "She has a very successful track record and will provide significant leadership to the communications strategy for the University as a whole."

DePauw has also expanded the role of Ken Owen, who will continue to serve as spokesman for the university and oversee its media relations efforts. He will also be responsible for coordinating the Ubben Lecture Series and the Monon Bell telecast as special adviser to McCoy.

The university has named Elreo "Reo" Campbell director of financial aid. Campbell joins DePauw from Colby College in Maine, where he served as director of financial aid and associate dean of admissions and financial aid. 

Additionally, DePauw has appointed Mellasenah Morris interim dean of the DePauw School of Music. Morris, who recently retired as dean of the Peabody Conservatory at Johns Hopkins University, will begin her new role August 1.
