The specialization in Humane Education is the result of a partnership with the Institute for Humane Education (IHE) and Valparaiso University. IHE students can enroll to complete their Ph.D. in Organizational Systems. The specialization emphasizes organizational management within educational systems at all levels and the unique organizational culture of educational institutions.
