The Higher Education Administration Department (HEA) is committed to promoting access and to preparing exceptional scholars and practitioners with knowledge, skills, competencies and an ethic of care needed for sound professional practice in the twenty-first century.
The Higher Education Administration Department serves the educational needs of a diverse student body through flexible programs with evolving and updated curricula. Our programs challenge students to become lifelong learners and leaders in the administration of higher education, student affairs and other professional communities. As the demographics of higher education change in the 21st century, our programs will provide highly prepared leaders representing diverse groups to serve the nation’s institutions of higher learning at the highest levels. Many students will continue their intellectual and personal development through doctoral programs and as scholar-practitioners.
