DePauw University and Wabash Colleges have followed Indiana University in joining Freedom Indiana, which is opposing a proposal that Indiana amend its constitution to ban same-sex marriage. A joint statement from the DePauw and Wabash presidents, Brian W. Casey and Gregory D. Hess, respectively, gave the following rationale: "Our students come from around the country and around the world, and our fundamental goal is to educate them to think critically, exercise responsible leadership, communicate effectively, and tackle complex problems. This depends on attracting talented faculty and staff, a task that is made more difficult by the passage of this amendment. We are also engaged in the enterprise of fostering ideas and innovation, a mission which inherently depends on an environment of openness and inclusion that would be compromised should this amendment be enacted."
