Welcome to UVM's HESA Program!

The Higher Education and Student Affairs Administration (HESA) graduate program enrolls approximately 18 students per year in the two-year program. This small size encourages strong and enduring relationships among students and faculty. The class cohorts represent a wide spectrum of undergraduate majors, geographic locations, previous experiences, and cultural backgrounds. These diverse perspectives enrich the educational environment and expand social awareness.

The Higher Education and Student Affairs Administration program is designed to prepare professionals to apply student development, organizational, foundational, multicultural and administrative principles to work with students. Working closely with faculty and in-place practitioners, graduate students in the program are challenged to experience an unparalleled learning experience.

Graduates from the Higher Education and Student Affairs Administration program pursue careers as professionals in colleges and universities, as well as in fields related to higher education throughout the country. Many professionals in this field serve as policy makers, advisors, student service providers, researchers, programmers, consultants, and administrators. Common to each functional area in student affairs and higher education is the goal to design environments conducive to students' growth and development.
