Greatness on

Doane University provides tomorrow’s leaders the chance to reach their full potential.

Small-Town Charm Meets Big-Time Opportunities

A comprehensive liberal arts university, Doane has been constantly growing since our founding in 1872. On our 300-acre campus in Crete, Nebraska, you will be able to get a taste of small-town life, while still having access to cities like Lincoln and Omaha. It’s the best of both worlds, and through a variety of personal and professional opportunities and experiences, you’ll find your niche here at Doane.
