  • Theoretical foundations (historical and evolutionary considerations, theories of student development, theories of organizational development, etc.),
  • Parameters of professional practice (ethical, legal and political issues, diversity and multiculturalism, social and moral responsibilities, etc.), and
  • Strategies for enhancing administrative effectiveness (leadership training, staff recruitment, training, and evaluation, budgeting and planning, program development, implementation, and assessment, etc.).
