Higher Ed Graduate Assistantship Center


Welcome from the Vice Provost for Student Affairs

Thank you for your interest in attending graduate school at the University of Kansas. Our Master’s Program in Higher Education Administration is an excellent choice!Photo of Tammara Durham, Ed.D.

Full-time students who are admitted to the Master’s Program also must be offered a Graduate Assistantship in order to fulfill the program requirements.

This approach reinforces our philosophy that having hands-on experience working in higher education is critical to your understanding of the academic curriculum. To study higher education without having this experience would leave a student with only a partial understanding of how a university functions.

Not only are our assistantships valuable to you as a student, the University of Kansas greatly benefits from our graduate assistants’ work and knowledge. Our graduate assistants help students be successful everyday.

I think you will find KU an excellent place to begin or continue your career in higher education. Best of luck in the process!

Rock Chalk Jayhawks!
