Leadership in Higher Education - Recommendation


The MAEd leadership in higher education program requires two recommendations. The BW admission office provides this online recommendation form and also a paper version if preferred. The two recommendations should be completed by individuals you have asked to provide either a professional or personal reference for you — a former faculty member, college/university administrator, job/professional supervisor or community leader with whom you have worked. When possible, the recommendations should come from people who have worked with you in a college environment. Recommendations should not be completed by any member of your immediate family.

Once received by the admission office, this online recommendation is confidential and will not be shared with you, the applicant. The person serving as your reference will need to share those comments with you directly.

Your application may not be fully considered until all recommendations are submitted, so encourage the individuals you select to complete this form promptly.


Thank you for taking time to complete this online recommendation form for applicants interested in the MAEd leadership in higher education program. In consideration of each applicant, emphasis is placed on comments from references concerning an applicant’s academic preparation and potential for a successful career. We are particularly interested in your perceptions of character and integrity, commitment to leadership, motivation and potential for personal and professional growth.

If preferred, a paper version of the recommendation may also be used.

This online recommendation is confidential and will not be shared with the applicant. If you would like the applicant to have a copy of your comments, please print this page before submitting it to the BW admission office.
