An academy was founded on May 22, 1871, in Crete, Nebraska through the joint efforts of Thomas Doane, the chief civil engineer for the Burlington and Missouri River Railroad, and a local Congregational pastor. On July 11, 1872, Doane College opened its doors and preempted Crete Academy. In May of 2016, Doane changed its name from Doane College to Doane University.
