Strategies for Change: The Role of the Internal Agent.
Kasschau, Richard A.
The Strategies for Change and Knowledge Utilization (SfCKU) watched nine colleges as the individual schools deliberated internally regarding any proposed programmatic change that would have substantial impact on undergraduate education. SfCKU would thereby gain access to decisionmaking in complex organizations. This document details the activities at the University of South Carolina (USC) following their acceptance of the SfCKU offer. The USC change concerned the establishment of the Bachelor of General Studies (BGS) degree, intended to contain curricular innovations. This paper focuses on the ad hoc committee formed to meet the issues raised by the BGS proposal, their problems, and their ultimate success. The key success of the ad hoc group was that it opened a direct line of communication for faculty reactions to the university administrators. (Author/PG)
