Overview

Eckel (associate director, Institutional Initiatives, American Council on Education) and Kezar (educational administration, U. of Maryland, College Park) provide campus leaders with suggestions on how to charge of major, transformational change at their institutions. Working with and observing 23 diverse institutions actively engaged in transformational change, the authors have developed a theoretically and empirically-based framework. They present key aspects of this model, including core change strategies, the interrelationships among strategies, the role of "sensemaking," and the need for attention to institutional culture.
