Established in 1977, the Center for the Study of Higher Education offers flexible, interdisciplinary, and individualized master of arts and doctor of philosophy degree programs with concentrations in comparative higher education, organization and administration, college access, and student affairs.
The Center's work is distinguished by:
- A commitment not just to improving practice, but also to educational changes that enhance the realization of social justice in higher education.
- A consideration of how developments in the political economy shape and are expressed in the restructuring of higher education settings, professions, and practices.
These distinctive characteristics go beyond individual faculty; they reflect a collective synergy and orientation of our faculty to scholarship and practice.
- An exploration of the international/global dimensions, issues, and agencies related to higher education, with particular attention devoted to the Americas.
