Program Statement

The Miami Student Affairs in Higher Education (SAHE) program operates on the assumption that student learning is a complex phenomena in which dimensions of students' intellectual, social, and interpersonal development are interdependent.   

Intellectual growth can and does occur in students' out-of-class interactions. Our view of an effective educational environment involves academic and student affairs educators working as partners to educate students. 

The Miami SAHE programs prepare Student Affairs educators to create environments that will provide for this type of diverse interaction and education to occur.
