Program Statement

Our programs in higher education energize students to take higher education to new heights. We provide students interested in beginning or advancing a career in higher education with a strong foundation in the purposes and ideals of higher education.  Most importantly, we provide the skills and foster the creativity to inspire future faculty, administrators, and policy makers in leading both students and institutions of higher learning to an even higher level of thinking and thoughtful change.  

Whether you want to become a faculty member in higher education, pursue leadership positions in colleges and universities, or contribute new knowledge about higher education, Warner’s flexible doctoral programs in higher education will help you achieve your goals.   

Graduates of our masters programs have become college admissions officers, facilities managers, financial aid officers, library administrators, and staff across a variety of academic, administrative, and student services offices. As advocates for innovative leadership, graduates understand how to motivate others, make decisions, manage people and processes, and enable individuals and institutions to reach their highest potential.
