The Institute of Higher Education experienced another successful year of research and instruction during 2010 and into 2011. IHE moved from 6 to 5 in U.S. News and World Report’s 2011 rankings of higher education programs. The University System of Georgia’s Board of Regents approved our request to launch a master’s program in the upcoming academic year (pg. 3). Our faculty conversations were lively as we considered how to integrate master’s level work into a curriculum that since the mid-1960s was oriented primarily to our resident doctoral programs.
