Hansen Speakers Series

Imagine eating dinner with the grandson of Gandhi. Or listening to Art Alexakis of Everclear strum his guitar in your classroom. Doane students did. The Hansen Speakers Series brings in leaders who hail from around the world. Why bring them to Doane? Because meeting people who embody leadership is powerful. Because hearing their stories can plant a seed.
