About the Program

On Friday, October 18, 2013, the Baylor Board of Regents officially approved a new Ph.D. program in Higher Education Studies & Leadership.

This program is the result of three years of extensive work by the higher education faculty. The faculty engaged in critical conversations about where higher education has been, where it is, and where it needs to go. These conversations resulted in studying other programs and consulting with leading scholars on how to provide a program that prepares future scholars and scholar-practitioners to lead our higher education institutions through a tumultuous future.

We are proud of the result, and we consider it a privilege you are interested in our program. By hovering over "About the Program" on the left, you will find links to detailed information that will give you a sense of what our program offers.
