DePauw University has appointed Dave Berque interim vice president for academic affairs for one year. He currently serves as associate vice president for student academic life, dean of academic life, executive director of the Hubbard Center for Student Engagement. Berque has been a professor of computer science since 1992. 

He holds a B.A. degree from Haverford College and M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. Berque has particular teaching and research interests related to human computer interaction and pen-based computing. He holds three U.S. patents and is the originator of a pen-based instructional technology software system that was the basis of a commercial system known as DyKnow Vision.

Berque received the 2007 Mira TechPoint Award for "Education Contribution in Technology - Individual" for his efforts to create the aforementioned software. The professor was recognized in 1997 as the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching Outstanding Baccalaureate Colleges United States Professor of the Year.

He takes over for Anne Harris who has been appointed vice president for academic affairs and dean of the college at Grinnell College in Iowa. She will assume the position July 1. Harris has also served as a professor of art history for 21 years. 

The decision to launch a national search during the 2019-20 academic year -- with the new vice president beginning service to DePauw in the Fall of 2020 -- was made after discussions determined that conducting a year-long search is more likely to yield a more robustly qualified and diverse pool of candidates.
