Higher Education Policy and Administration: Courses and Certificate

The Yehuda Elkana Center for Teaching, Learning, and Higher Education Research is pleased to offer courses in the field of higher education policy and administration. Most of these courses are offered through the OSUN Certificate Program in Higher Education Administration, outlined below. These courses are open to employees of OSUN-member institutions. Please see course descriptions for further information about the topics and the application/registration forms for dates and times. 

OSUN participants (including CEU staff) should apply online for individual courses. The certificate is earned when all requirements are met and does not require separate application. For more information about the OSUN Professional Development Program for University Administrators and Managers, which manages the Certificate, please see the program's website. 

Eligible CEU graduate students should register via their programs (in programs where this is typical) or register via SITS.
