Higher ed has changed, and the trajectory of preparation has changed. These times call for a new approach to leadership and decision-making, an approach that provides higher education leaders with skills to become catalysts for change.

Melissa Morriss-Olson, University Provost, Founding Director, CHELIP & HELOS


Bay Path University has been at the forefront of developing and implementing ‘next generation’ best teaching and learning practices for more than 120 years.

We continually look to the collective experience and vision of academic thought leaders to confront, assess and respond to the ongoing evolution of higher education. In 2019, in consort with the establishment of the doctorate in Higher Education Leadership & Organizational Studies (HELOS), we created The Center of Higher Education Leadership & Innovative Practice.

Operating as a University-wide learning hub, the Center reports directly to the President and is supported by an advisory board of innovative thinkers within and across the higher education landscape and beyond.
