Office of the President

Dr. Donald R. Eastman III
President of Eckerd College

Donald R. Eastman IIIWelcome to Eckerd! We have students from 48 states - plus the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands - and 32 countries enrolled in our residential program, and nearly 1,000 students enrolled in our Program for Experienced Learners. In addition to more than 38 majors and academic programs, Eckerd College offers study abroad opportunities at over 100 institutions throughout the world and has led the nation in the percentage of students who have studied abroad in a single academic year. Annually, our students perform over 70,000 hours of service for agencies and organizations across the United States and in countries around the world.

And to those who believe in the value of lifelong learning, we offer executive education and leadership development through our nationally recognized Leadership Development Institute; Osher Lifelong Learning Institute; Elderhostel; and the Academy of Senior Professionals at Eckerd College. I invite you to tour our website to explore all that Eckerd offers.

In 2001-02, my inaugural year, I identified five values that characterize Eckerd College: residential, global, spiritual, environmental, and personal. They may be, in the intensity of their combination here, in this place, unique. These are values that, we believe, engender intellectual, imaginative and spiritual freedom.

Throughout the year, I will be updating this page with reports and announcements that you may find informative. Please visit often! If you have comments and questions, please send your emails to the President's Office.
