Higher Education Leadership Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) in Education and Human Resource Studies – Higher Education Leadership Specialization

Hear from Our Students

Robert Brown

Hear how earning his Ph.D. with CSU has helped Robert progress as an educator and work toward creating a more equitable student experience on campus.

“The more I got involved on campus and in the community, the more I realized that my real passion was for education. I think this program has empowered me to re-envision how I think about my own possibilities. I’m learning theories and immediately putting them into practice. That has really enriched my learning experience and challenged my thinking in a variety of ways.”
