Doud received her PhD in higher education from Claremont Graduate University in 1976. "My overwhelming sentiment tonight is one of gratitude," she said after receiving the award during an October ceremony. "I am grateful for the experience I had at Claremont Graduate University."
"We are privileged to call Dr. Doud a CGU alumna," said Joy Kliewer, director of alumni affairs at the graduate university. "Her remarkable talents and contributions in educational leadership are a testament to her success and bring great distinction to the university."
For 35 years, Doud has dedicated herself to advancing higher education through teaching and leadership, consulting, and outreach. Among her many leadership activities, she currently serves on the Board of Visitors for the graduate university's School of Educational Studies and on the Board of Directors of the Independent Colleges of Southern California.
Before joining Mount St. Mary's, Doud was vice president for academic affairs and dean of the faculty, and professor of humanities at University of La Verne. She holds a Master of Arts degree in French literature from the University of California, Berkeley, and a Bachelor of Arts degree in French from Mundelein College in Chicago.
