Welcome to Doane College! This college on the hill has come a long way since its founding in 1872. Yet, we are still very much a young college in spirit and purpose.

As Doane's founding President David Brainard Perry once wrote, "the college should be a place that prepares young people ‘for the work of life'."  He was right in 1872 and he will still be right in 2072. 

We strive to be a model of academic excellence defined by the opportunities and challenges that students face in the 21st Century.

Doane is a distinctive place, a college that was born in the liberal arts tradition and raised in the nation's heartland. We know that every generation faces a new frontier. We provide students the skills and knowledge they need today and in the future.

Doane is a community. Our faculty and staff work closely with undergraduate and graduate students preparing them for lives rooted in intellectual inquiry, ethical values, and a commitment to engage as leaders and responsible citizens in the world. 

It's a pleasure and a privilege to be Doane College's 12th President.
