About the Program, the College and the University

Arizona State University is the largest public university in the United States, availing incredible opportunities for current and aspiring higher education leaders to study the complexity and diversity of contemporary higher education.  The Higher and Postsecondary Education (HED) program’s mission is to develop leaders who are characterized by a strong foundation in the theory and practice of higher education administration; capacity to analyze the issues confronting contemporary colleges and universities; and expertise in designing solutions to transform administrative decision-making. Consistent with the university’s charter, the program determines its success not by whom it excludes, but by whom it includes and how they succeed. Our faculty’s research and teaching emphasize local impact as well as global outreach and influence. The program’s vision is to establish Arizona State University as the model for educating innovative higher education leaders.  

The Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College offers rigorous undergraduate and graduate degree programs. The college is dedicated to supporting faculty members so they can provide excellent instruction to students while pursuing bold scholarship that is changing the face of education. Teachers College’s award-winning faculty members are recognized for their master teaching by the university as well as by community, national, and international organizations.

Arizona State University, a respected research institution in the Pac-12 Conference, is developing a new model of an American research university: one that measures its academic quality by the education its graduates receive; one at which researchers, while pursuing their scholarly interests, also consider the public good; and one whose faculty expands the concept of community service by accepting major responsibility for the health, economic and social development of its community. The university’s eight Design Aspirations – to leverage our place, transform society, value entrepreneurship, conduct use-inspired research, enable student success, fuse intellectual disciplines, be socially embedded, and engage globally – anchor our faculty’s teaching, scholarship, and service.
