We believe that higher education leaders should be equipped with a firm understanding of leadership, culture, and teamwork in order to lead complex organizations and implement a myriad of administrative responsibilities.
We understand that adults learn best when new theories, concepts, and information are integrated into familiar contexts, when there are ongoing opportunities for collaboration and discourse, and when the "big picture" is always present. Consequently, the program's learning model is cohort-based and content is built around broad themes that encompass components of the complex organization we know as higher education.
This program in Higher Education Leadership at the Northwest Missouri State University is offered in the blended model: 7-8 face-to-face meetings each term with online attendance throughout the entire term. Opportunities for program specialization are available through electives incorporated into the program.
Individuals currently holding, or interested in, leadership positions in higher education will find this program flexible and accommodating to their needs.
