How Graduates Have Benefited from the Program

“The Ed.D. in Higher Education Administration at Seton Hall University was one of the most amazing and rewarding experiences of my life. I was highly impressed by the expertise of the faculty, and their excitement and passion about teaching and lifelong learning. The faculty within the College of Education and Human Services were actively engaged in all levels of research on a national and international level. Additionally, they were up to date on the latest research and best practices within the field of higher education. After completing two courses taught by Dr. Joe Stetar during my first semester, I realized that Seton Hall had a superior program to offer, and that my learning would transform my approach to my professional work in higher education.  As a current vice president on a college campus, I draw on my learning from my time at Seton Hall every day.”   -- Patrick Lamy, Ed.D. '05, Vice President for Student Affairs, Bloomfield College
“As a new student in the Higher Education Administration Ed.D. program at Seton Hall, my experience so far has been outstanding. I was welcomed into the program with a meeting with my adviser, a full-time faculty member, who was able to help me plan my program and assist me with my first registration. The classes have been challenging and engaging, and I have already learned so much from my professors. Working full time and attending two classes per semester has been time consuming, but the faculty has been accommodating and supportive, and I have been able to successfully complete my assignments for each class. I highly recommend this program to anyone currently working in the higher education field. The opportunities for research, publication and career advancement are endless, and Seton Hall is a warm and friendly place to continue your education.”  -- Jessica Chambers, Current Student (Class of 2011), Director of Admissions, County College of Morris
