UH College of Education Professor and Alum Tapped for National Leadership Program

Horn since has become a policy wonk, serving as a professor of higher education at the University of Houston College of Education and researching critical topics such as college access and admissions and teacher and principal retention.

Now, Horn will delve deeper into issues in higher education leadership, selected to participate in a prestigious yearlong fellowship program through the American Council on Education. She will be paired with a mentor at another university, shadowing executives and gaining insights she can bring back to UH.

“I’m very excited to learn from another institution,” said Horn, who chairs the College’s Department of Educational Leadership & Policy Studies. “I think we can benefit from other people’s experiences, the positive and negative, and that helps us collectively get stronger.”
