HALE Mission Statement The HALE master's program prepares individuals for entry- level leadership positions in postsecondary education, public agencies, and business settings. The program provides a broad understanding of educational systems from social, historical, cross-national, normative perspectives and an understanding of central issues in postsecondary teaching and learning, and a theoretical understanding of administration and leadership connected to practice. There are opportunities to develop and use skills needed in practice through practica and field experiences.
