Higher Education Administration Program Information
The Higher Education Administration program has been established for students aspiring to become community college and university administrators, deans, presidents, and professors. America’s community colleges and universities will soon face a critical leadership gap. As the baby boom generation approaches retirement age, many provosts, deans and college presidents are getting ready to add “emeritus” to their titles. As a result, openings in top leadership positions are expected to exceed the number of appropriately-trained individuals for many years to come.
The University of Florida’s College of Education is helping fill the gap. Our nationally recognized Higher Education Administration Program prepares future leaders for their roles in administrative positions in higher education. Our faculty and alumni shaped the community and state college system as we know it, and our graduates have gone on to crucial administrative positions at two- and four- year institutions. Join us in shaping the future of higher education.
