Renaissance Man: Scott Duprees UD Legacy Spans 6 Decades, 6 Departments

Scott Dupree

 

Because he was a member of the university's third graduating class and returned as an English professor less than four years later, Scott Dupree, BA '62, has been with the university in some context for every single undergraduate class at UD.

A jack of all trades, and seemingly a master of them all too, Dupree has taught courses in the English, modern language, music, art, drama and history departments. He has also served as director of the librarya post he stepped down from in 2013as well as chair of the English and modern languages departments. He has even spent time as the director of the Rome Program.

A true lover of learning, Dupree's joy in teaching is apparent. He recalled a time when someone asked why he loved teaching so much.

"Have you ever read a book you really, really enjoyed, and you just wanted to talk about it with someone else who had read it?" he responded. "I get to read books I enjoy, then I get to talk to about 40 people who had to read them and who have to talk about them with me and I get paid for it!"
