President Carter

As President of Doane University I am truly honored that you have taken the first steps in your college exploration process and are considering furthering your education with us. At Doane, our students “Earn Their Shield”. What does that mean, you might ask? To us, Earning Your Shield means promoting a campus environment that allows our students to create a life-changing, friend-making, learning experience that encapsulates so much more than just a degree. Earning Your Shield at Doane is unique because the little things make a big difference:

  • Feeling comfortable communicating with your professor. Our average class size of 11 students allows active participation among all students, giving you the best opportunity to thrive in the classroom.
  • A captivating, scenic 300-acre campus to call home that you need to see to believe.
  • An affordable education thanks to more than $21 million set aside for scholarships/financial aid given out to 100 percent of our students.
  • A guarantee that we will get you through our curriculum in four years (or less) giving you more time to earn a salary in the working world.
  • Opportunities beyond your imagination that allow a theatre aficionado to also be a shortstop, a singer to be a chemist or a researcher to also be a dancer.
  • A commitment from our faculty and staff to always put the student first, because that’s what we’re here for… you, the student.

We look forward to continuing to share the Doane experience with you during your decision-making process. As you progress through the final days of high school, we truly hope that you will love Doane as much as we do and choose to Earn Your Shield with us here at Doane!

Dr. Jacque Carter

President, Doane University
