We believe that reflective leaders are skilled educators whose practices and decisions draw upon the best available theory, research and experiential wisdom.
Our degrees in Adult and Higher Education have been developed for those in the fields of adult education, and higher education teaching and administration. These degrees help develop professionals who can add substantially to the field with original and ongoing work as well as perform effectively as practitioners on the job. The Adult and Higher Education program encourages the student/learner to be a participant in the process, to choose directions, and to make worthwhile contributions. This climate of encouragement directly affects the program by providing stimulation and relevance to an individual's educational experience.
