About the Harvard Institutes for Higher Education
The Harvard Institutes for Higher Education (HIHE) offers comprehensive leadership development programs designed for higher education administrators — from directors, department heads, and deans, to vice presidents, provosts, and presidents. Because the leadership issues you face depend on your position, we group you with peers who share similar experiences and perspectives.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Professional Education at the Harvard Graduate School of Education has canceled all residential offerings for the 2020 year and has developed new and redesigned online programs tailored to meet the critical needs of higher education administrators in this moment.
