Military Connected Students
Doane has a rich history of supporting those that defend our freedom.
Brave men and women of the U.S. Armed Forces have chosen to pursue a college education through Doane because we meet the needs of all of our students. We are built on the principle that when students invest their time, energy and money in a college education, it is our duty and responsibility as a college to honor that investment by giving students the resources and support they need to achieve success.

A message from Doane’s President
It is my honor to welcome you to Doane University!
Whether you are looking to advance in the military or transition to a new career, Doane’s faculty and staff have the knowledge and experience to help you earn a degree. We pride ourselves on providing a welcoming learning environment uniquely designed to help you achieve your personal and professional goals.
Doane has a strong history of serving the military community. In the spring of 1943, Doane was selected to provide college educations for officer candidates in the V-12 U.S. Navy Officer Training Program. It brought 331 men to campus that summer, and we’ve never forgotten the pride we felt from supporting our servicemen during World War II.
That pride carries over into a commitment today, with our three adult learner campuses serving nontraditional students in Grand Island, Lincoln and Omaha. Our college is a community, and people learn best when they genuinely feel they are an important part of it. Our advising, career development and support staff dutifully build that sense of community and provide everything you need when you need it. Our high-quality academic experience is enhanced by our faculty who are working professionals in their field and our Veterans Affairs liaisons make your transition to Doane simple, successful and smooth.
I encourage you to think big. Plan for your future and work towards accomplishing your educational goals. Best wishes for an enriching and rewarding experience at Doane, and again, welcome!
Dr. Jacque Carter
