Douglass College
Sacred Path

This coming month, Douglass will welcome the Class of 2026 to campus. At Welcome Days, Douglass staff and student ambassadors from the Douglass Student Recruitment Network put on a two-day suite of activities for new students. The College is excited to connect a new cohort of talented and bright undergraduates to the power of the Douglass Difference.


Recent Douglass alumnae are using the talents and skills developed through a Douglass education to make strides both out in the world and back on campus. Jackie Mehr DRC’22 is an active Douglass alumna and current NIH researcher. Throughout her four years as an undergraduate student, she cultivated an impressive research career that culminated in her receiving the Goldwater Scholarship. The insights Mehr has to share are invaluable to the over half of Douglass students pursuing degrees in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). Through the power of the Douglass network, current Douglass students have the ability to connect with alumnae like Mehr to gain wisdom from her experiences.


Thank you for the warm welcome I have received from so many of you to the Interim Dean role. 

I joined Douglass four years ago in the Office of Advancement and have served for the past two years as the Associate Dean for Strategic Initiatives, overseeing communications, operations, and planning at the College. While I have had the pleasure of meeting many of you, I wanted to take a minute to introduce myself to those of you I have not yet met.

To Our Alumnae Community,

One of my greatest joys as Dean of Douglass has been learning about and getting to know our wonderful alumnae. I have met hundreds of you, learned about your lives and dreams, and shared the many wonders of Douglass today. Your reflections on your college years, the deep friendships you generated at Douglass, and your curiosity about the College today have fueled many fulfilling days and hours over my last twelve years as Dean.

Students at Douglass Day

The Douglass Global Village and the Douglass Discovery Faculty Fellows program held the first annual Douglass Day, an event in which students presented the projects they worked on this past semester. The evening offered students the opportunity to share their work, showing the entire college community all that can be achieved through Douglass programs!


The winner of the 2022 Edele Neilson Prize in Speech is Kimberly Mohabeer DRC’22! As the recipient of this honor, Mohabeer will deliver the 2022 Student Address at the 101st Spring Convocation on May 14, 2022.

“I am excited to celebrate the culmination of years of hard work with all of my Douglass peers!” said Mohabeer of her upcoming speech. “My peers, our Douglass staff and faculty, our families, and our friends have all worked tirelessly for this moment.”
