Omaha ribbon cutting scheduled for Jan. 10

Just six months after announcing it would be opening an Omaha location, Doane College will be holding a ribbon-cutting celebration at the new campus from 3–7 p.m. on Jan. 10.

Omaha Mayor Jean Stothert and David Brown, the president and chief executive officer of the Greater Omaha Chamber of Commerce, will be among those participating in the official ribbon cutting at 4 p.m.

Omaha is the site of Doane’s fourth campus in Nebraska. The college also has locations in Crete, Lincoln and Grand Island with nearly 3,000 students across the School of Arts and Sciences and the School of Graduate and Professional Studies.

“The opening of the new Omaha campus has generated much excitement at Doane and in the community,” said Doane President Jacque Carter. “Since the 1990s, Doane has had a strong following in Omaha because of our education programs, so feedback has been incredibly positive about bringing a dedicated campus – and more of our quality liberal arts and sciences programs – to the area.”

 In October, Colleen Haack became the director of the Omaha campus and April Paschall serves as both an academic advisor and operations coordinator.

“We are ready to unveil our Omaha campus and get started with classes this month,” Haack said.

The Omaha campus is part of Doane’s School of Graduate and Professional Studies, offering programs to both adult learners and graduate students.  Students can work toward undergraduate degrees in Human Relations, Information Systems Management, Liberal Arts Studies, Organizational Communication, Professional Studies in Accounting, Professional Studies in Business, Public Administration and the newly accredited Bachelor of Science in Nursing Program. Doane will also offer two graduate programs: the Master of Arts in Management and the Master of Arts in Counseling.

The Omaha campus is located at 4020 South 147th Street, near 144th and F Streets.

Classes are scheduled to begin in January.
