Program Emphasis

Designed for college faculty and administrators who aspire to lead effectively and advance in administrative careers, the concentration in community college policy and administration offers exceptional scholarship, intimate cohorts, online courses, short residencies, distinguished faculty, and dissertation support in a program that can be completed within three years.

You will work together in the same group of about 15–20 students throughout the entire program and build a virtual community developed and led by current and former community college presidents and senior executives.

With a highly respected credential, sophisticated knowledge, and an accomplished dissertation, you'll emerge from the program with the tools to transform student achievement and successfully guide community colleges into the essential role they will play in the future of higher education.

Courses with Community College Emphasis

All courses in the program are focused on community colleges.
