The Higher Education Administration Ph.D. empowers professionals in higher education to further their careers at the university level. Students will receive training on a variety of topics, including: organization and administrative theory; higher education finance, law, and history; identifying and utilizing appropriate technologies; constituent relations; diversity initiatives; and research practices and distribution. Classes take place four weekends per semester with an online component on Tuesdays. Most participants are part-time students who are employed full time.
The LEI Ph.D. was created for administrative and teacher leaders who aspire to make a positive impact on social justice and equity in education. Our students become effective evaluators and producers of research and advance their careers in P-20 education, educational think-tanks, and governmental and non-governmental organizations. This is a Chicago-based weekend cohort program where students meet four weekends per semester. Candidates work full-time and attend classes part-time. Students may add Superintendent & Chief School Business Official (CSBO) endorsements.
