Doane University in Crete will return to in-person instruction for fall 2020. That’s the word from University President Dr. Jaque Carter, who said the university has been using remote learning as a time to examine different scenarios in which students will be able to return to campus safely. He said a detailed plan is still in the works and everything will be considered in terms of minimizing risk.

“If we can find a way to minimize the possibility of the virus causing a problem, we will certainly take it. And that would mean not shortening, necessarily, the school year, but to compress it,” Carter said.

Carter said person-to-person interaction is important to students’ learning experience. But, he says he is proud and excited about what the university has been able to accomplish during the pandemic through online learning.
