Like so many of you, we have spent the last several days and weeks learning more about the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) and how it is impacting our world, country, and state.

At this time, we are continuing to plan alumni events that are over a month away. We will continue to monitor all WHO, CDC, state, and Doane University guidelines and requirements. Should the status of this event change, communication will be sent to all registered guests several weeks in advance.
