Doane University will resume its course offerings on campus this fall, President Jacque Carter announced Thursday.

The university has formed a Fall Planning Task Force that has been developing plans to reopen Doane’s campuses in Crete, Lincoln, Omaha and Grand Island.

Input and guidance from public health officials is being carefully examined, and the university will continue to operate in accordance with all local, state and federal government guidelines and restrictions.

The spring term and semester ended May 8 for Doane’s residential and non-residential students. Additionally, all summer courses in the College of Education, College of Business and College of Professional Studies have transitioned to online instruction. The summer term for non-residential students begins May 26.

“The health, wellness and safety of our Doane community remains our top priority, and it is our belief that we will be able to welcome our students, faculty and staff to learning environments this fall that are safe and protect the wellness of those on campus,” Carter said.
