The Graduate Certificate in Higher Education Leadership for Student Success is intended to prepare educators to develop and lead higher education programs and services that can improve outcomes for an increasingly diverse student population. Learners examine the history and structure of the U.S. higher education system, as well as factors affecting student success, engagement, and retention. Coursework explores fundamental principles of adult learning, best practices for student success, methodologies for meeting the needs of underprepared and first-generation higher education students, and strategies for leading the institutional changes necessary to improve student outcomes. This program is designed to prepare leaders who can help higher education institutions meet their students’ needs more effectively and cost-efficiently. Learners can apply the credits they earn in this certificate program toward Walden’s M.S. in Higher Education with a specialization in Leadership for Student Success.
