Alumni chapters, whether they meet face to face or online, are a critical link between alumni and the College while providing opportunities for Doane College alumni to maintain an active role in the life of the institution through leadership, inquiry, ethical values, and engagement. Alumni chapters are vital to the work of Doane College.
The purpose and goals of Doane College alumni chapters are:
A successful alumni chapter is one that provides opportunities for Doane College alumni to maintain an active role in the life of the College. Alumni chapters are a great way to enhance Doane as nothing else can, because they are volunteer driven. They serve and respond to local alumni, assist in recruiting good students, demonstrate the public pride in the College, and help with the College's fundraising efforts. The spirit of Doane lasts a lifetime.
A spirit chapter can be started in areas where fewer than 500 graduates live or alumni participation rates are currently low. Volunteers make up a steering committee and carry out events they want to sponsor. An activity box of decorations, name tags, door prizes and brochures are provided to each spirit chapter along with current information to share about the college. Spirit chapters can celebrate as often as they want with activities such as Friday After Club gatherings, football watch parties, dinners, receptions, etc. The sky is the limit!
