Higher Education Administration & Leadership

The Higher Education Administration and Leadership (HEAL) program prepares higher education professionals to manage and lead in institutions of higher education, especially Hispanic Serving Institutions (HSIs), and to enhance the success of the students they serve. Adams State’s Master of Arts and post-graduate Executive Leadership Certificate offer cohort-based, experiential learning in an online environment. These flexible programs are designed for the working professional. The M.A. program is a two-year program and the Executive Leadership Certificate (ELC) is a one-year, post-graduate program. Both have two residencies—an orientation and a Leadership Summit—which provide networking and mentoring opportunities for our students.

For more information about the HEAL program, please contact the HEAL Director at 719-587-7934, heal@adams.edu or visit the HEAL website.
