Newly launched at Hobart and William Smith Colleges, the Master of Arts in Higher Education Leadership (MHEL) is a dynamic program that will prepare students to apply effective and creative leadership in ways that challenge assumptions about higher education, strengthen capacity for systemic change, and support a contemporary generation of college students. Alongside of compelling internships and graduate assistantships that offer future practitioners immersion experiences and practice in a wide array of campus offices and neighboring campuses, students will take courses that encourage them to analyze and critique the history and policy of higher education, identify ways in which they can act on their personal commitments as they relate to diversity, equity and inclusion, and have opportunities to investigate leadership and innovation techniques. Ultimately, graduates will be readied for a wide spectrum of entry-level and middle-management positions in student affairs as well as other professional areas within colleges, universities, community colleges, and policymaking organizations.
