From the President
Read a transcript of Doane College President Jacque Carter's speech, entitled "Seeking the Better Angels of our Nature," from the Crete campus's 2015-16 Convocation ceremonies Aug. 27 in Heckman Auditorium.
Earth Day provides all of us—students, faculty and staff—with an opportunity to do our part to keep our planet healthy.
As the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday draws near, it brings with it a time for reflection at Doane College. There is still much to be accomplished.
A recent Gallup-Purdue Index Report shows the effect of dynamic faculty connecting with students personally in college classrooms. The payoff for students is greater engagement in their careers after college.
At Doane, we put high-quality faculty in intimate learning environments where there is a genuine, difference-making bond between professor and learner. It's just another reason why we are the College of get a great job.
Here, in our 300-acre haven in Crete, is a living, breathing reminder of why we teach the liberal arts and sciences.
And today, I'm signing on the dotted line to make sure sustainability is part of our institutional goals and culture.
