Requires the critical analysis and substantial examination of a topic related to higher education leadership and administration based on publicly available information, research, or data. The goal of the course is to use research-based information and methods to implement change or improvement relevant to the student’s own area of focus. Takes the student through the process of problem definition, question development, analysis of the literature, and the development of a change management plan. Students may choose a topic of their choice relating to the focus of the program and relevant to their own leadership context. This is a capstone project that builds on the research principles, techniques and approaches introduced in earlier courses. Prerequisites: HEAL510 and LRNT506.
