Parent Organization: Auburn University

HESA serves as the collective voice in representing the needs of all graduate students associated with the Higher Education Administration master’s and doctoral program. We aim to support the academic, social, & professional development of our members. Grad students from other programs with a university position are welcome to join as well! 

HESA fosters the development of graduate students and para-professionals in the student services profession at Auburn University. We host many social gatherings to connect our graduate students as the program here at Auburn does not use a cohort model. There are also Social Events, Professional Development Sessions, the Fall Graduate Orientation, and Placement for Graduate Assistants (PGA) events that we host throughout the year as well. Please contact us if there are any departments/professionals across campus that you would like to see us utilize and/or any social functions that you would like to recommend.
