Designed for higher education leaders — from directors, department heads, and deans, to vice presidents, provosts, and presidents — our programs group you with peers who share similar experiences, perspectives, and specific problems of practice, creating a vibrant learning community. All of our programs are grounded in evidence-based research and the expertise of faculty at the Harvard Graduate School of Education.

When you pursue professional development at HGSE, you’ll find participants who bring multiple perspectives from a broad range of institutions, including large research universities, comprehensive regional institutions, small liberal arts colleges, and community colleges — creating a rich, multi-layered, and dynamic learning environment in which your thinking and approaches will be challenged, and you will gain insight from the research and teaching of our outstanding faculty and your peers.
