Vice President for Student Affairs, Dr. Earle Doman, will leave an impact on Missouri State University long after his tenure ends and his retirement begins.

Doman held a number of student affairs positions at Missouri State from 1976-87. From there he spent time serving as the vice president for student services and athletic director at Arkansas Tech in Russellville. He returned to Missouri State as the dean of students in 1999 and he has served as the vice president for student affairs since 2008.

In honor of his retirement, Doman and his wife, Dalene, have established the Dr. Earle and Dalene Doman Leadership Scholarship. This endowed scholarship will benefit incoming freshman to Missouri State with consideration given to high school performance, college potential and leadership qualities. The student may continue to hold the scholarship throughout their Missouri State University college career depending on if they continue to meet the scholarship’s criteria and are engaged on campus.

When speaking about his time and experiences at Missouri State Doman said “Missouri State University has been and will always remain, for me, a special place.”

Doman will leave a lasting mark on Missouri State University for his years of service to the campus and the community. He and his wife will leave a lasting legacy at Missouri State with this new scholarship benefitting emerging Missouri State leaders for generations to come.

Make a contribution to the Dr. Earle and Dalene Doman Leadership Scholarship.

    Dr. Doman has been a central figure in the university’s student-centered approach to higher education and the enrichment of students’ lives. As an advocate and ombudsman for students and as a role model, he brought dignity, empathy and an insistence on personal responsibility to his work. His encouraging words and positive attitude have been greatly appreciated and I hope he is leaving his position with the university knowing he made a positive and important contribution.
