Receiving his B.S. from the University of Iowa and his M.S. and Ph.D. from the University of North Dakota, Dr. Doug Quick combines his two great loves in the classroom: his belief in and discipleship to Jesus Christ, and his intense study and dedication to science.
Since taking over the Biology program, Quick has been instrumental in the lives of his students, going above and beyond to help them achieve their goals of post-graduate education.
“I just really enjoy the life sciences and every aspect of it. I enjoy getting people to where they need to be. I do it well so I can get people into medical school, veterinary school, dental school, physical therapy, and everywhere. That is what I really enjoy about it. Helping people grow in Christ.”
