A message from the dean . . .
We are so pleased that you have chosen Doane College to pursue your graduate studies. Our mission it to provide a program of study that will help you continue your development as a leader in your workplace and all other aspects of your life.
This handbook is designed to serve as a guide to the policies and procedures in place to assist you during your time with us. It was developed with input from students, alumni, faculty, staff, administration, and even a couple of lawyers, and is considered to be a work in progress. While we have attempted to anticipate all situations that should be addressed by the procedures in the handbook, we know there are some that might not be covered. When a circumstance arises that requires creative problem-solving, we will work with you to develop a good plan of action.
The policies outlined in this handbook were not delivered to us etched on stone tablets. They were designed by people using the best resources available at that time for decision-making. Circumstances can arise that make adapting or waiving a policy both wise and appropriate. Again, we are ready to work with you if a special need requires reexamination of a policy.
The environment in which we operate and the people we serve are constantly changing, so we need your help to measure the effectiveness of the processes and practices we have in place. We want you to learn, enjoy the learning process, and end every course with a feeling of accomplishment and pride in the work you have done. How will we know when that happens? You must tell us. You are the people with the greatest competence to assess our work.
We are honored to have you with us and look forward to growing with you.
