Culver-Stockton president accepts position in Michigan

Dr. Douglas B. Palmer

CANTON, Mo. — Douglas B. Palmer, president of Culver-Stockton College, has accepted the position of president of Siena Heights University in Adrian, Michigan.

He will conclude his tenure at C-SC on June 30 and begin his new role in July. Palmer, C-SC’s 27th president, joined the institution in 2020 after having served as Provost at Walsh University.

“I am immensely grateful for the opportunity to have served Culver-Stockton College and appreciate the trust placed in me, particularly during the difficult times of the COVID-19 pandemic,” Palmer said. “I am proud of the work we accomplished as a team and I believe that Culver-Stockton shined during this period.” 

Ron Leftwich, chairman of the C-SC Board of Trustees, said the board members wish Palmer success in his new position and appreciate his service to the college. 

“Doug’s forward vision has advanced Culver-Stockton College and developed plans that will help the College for the future,” Leftwich said.

Under Palmer’s leadership, the college accomplished the launching of the agricultural business management degree, achieved full 10-year reauthorization of accreditation from the Higher Learning Commission, and established the permanent home for the Tri-State Development via a $1 million donation from the late Thomas A. Oakley.

A search for Culver-Stockton College’s 28th president will begin shortly.
