Doggett's leadership also saw an increase in the size of the student body from fifty to 500 and in the faculty which increased from eight to forty. Dr. Doggett was instrumental in developing the college's humanics philosophy which called for the education of the whole person - spirit, mind and body; a philosophy that the college embraces to this day. Doggett remained active in the Springfield College community until in death in 1957 at the age of 92.
