The Higher Education - Diversity and Social Justice at the University of Michigan gives students the tools for increasing their knowledge and skills regarding diversity and social justice in higher education. It equips students to address these issues within their careers and other spheres of influence.


The Higher Education - Diversity and Social Justice at the University of Michigan cultivates a supportive network of graduate students and faculty who are interested in research and pedagogy around issues of diversity and social justice.


You will benefit from both the academic rigor of the master's program at large and also from specific aspects of the study of diversity, research on educational policies and practices, and the practice of social justice education. 

Students have several opportunities to integrate knowledge across a variety of learning contexts and are challenged to consider broad issues that affect higher and postsecondary education. 

You will be paired with an advisor from among the Center for the Study of Higher and Postsecondary Education (CSHPE) faculty members, based on shared professional interests. Students and advisors work together to develop a plan of study that is appropriate to the student’s background and career interests.
