Abstract/ Summary

The Higher Education (HED) graduate programs include the doctoral degree in Higher Education, which prepares mid-career professionals for programmatic and institutional leadership roles and the masters in Student Development in Higher Education preparing entry level professionals for work in student affairs in postsecondary institutions. While these programs have distinct goals as described below, they share in the mission to educate competent and visionary professionals and leaders working to support the academic missions of increasingly diverse, complex, and technologically intensive postsecondary institutions in Maine and beyond. The HED graduate programs also share in the commitment to (1) developing both individual and professional skills and vision; (2) enhancing institutional capacities through more skilled leadership at all levels; (3) developing collaborative networks of professional resources and support through colleagues, faculty, and resource people with whom students have contact; and (4) providing a forum for analysis of regional and national problems in higher education and for advancing solutions to those problems.
