The Office of Strategic Communications provides strategic communications and marketing leadership for Doane University. Our results-oriented team of experienced and talented professionals is responsible for helping Doane communicate with one voice—on all four campuses, statewide, nationally and worldwide—in deeply rooted support of the university's mission, values and strategic plan.

We are committed to building, promoting and furthering the university's distinct brand while providing superior quality and service to the entire Doane community. Through creative marketing plans, dynamic design, a consistent Web presence and vibrant photography, OSC collaborates with departments, units and offices to promote Doane University. Our team of professionals also provides broad-based support and produces stories that showcase the remarkable achievements of Doane students, faculty, staff and alumni, both through traditional news and social media while also maintaining cooperative relationships with the media.
