Higher Education Student Affairs



Read the Faculty Bios

HESA students are guided academically and professionally by a faculty advisor. The HESA program faculty represent a diverse combination of former practitioners and career-long faculty who possess a range of experiences within higher education. In addition to the core HESA faculty members, campus administrators from departments such as the Dean of Students, Student and Campus Life, Residential Life, and the Center for Student Ethics and Standards are co-instructors for courses.

Together, students, faculty, and program-affiliated practitioners contribute their unique perspectives and high expectations to the Higher Education and Student Affairs program.
