A Kansas City native who grew up across the street from Rockhurst, Doyle has more than two decades of experience working in higher education, most recently serving as the director of service, diversity and social justice at Fontbonne University, where she has worked for the past 13 years.

Doyle received a bachelor’s degree from Northwest Missouri State University, a master’s degree in higher education from the University of Kansas, a master’s degree in business and leadership from Fontbonne University and an Ed.D. from Maryville University.

The new office will help students, faculty and staff from historically underrepresented groups and will establish opportunities for the campus community that encourage development of self-awareness and understanding of others, according to a Rockhurst release.

“This project is about paving a path for our future as an institution,” said Rockhurst president the Rev. Thomas B. Curran, S.J. “Walking with one another as true companions is at the core of our educational mission and, as critically, of our identity as a Jesuit institution.”
