Doane President to step down
CRETE, Neb. (KLKN) — According to a news release sent out by Doane University, the current University President Dr. Jacque Carter plans to step down by June of 2021.
Dr. Carter took up the role as president in July of 2011. In his tenure at Doane, the liberal arts school transitioned from “College” to “University” through the expansion of their academic structure.
“A decision like this is never made lightly,” Dr. Carter said in the news release. “Many considerations, both personal and professional, went into this decision for me. As I reflect on my tenure as President and recall the wonderful students I’ve met, the great people I’ve worked with, and the good things we have done, I’m also reminded that with every journey there is a beginning and an end. After a decade at the helm, I believe it’s a good time to hand over the wheel to a new President.”
The Doane University Board of Trustees says they are “grateful for everything Dr. Carter has done” and beginning the initial steps in searching for a new President.
