Journal of Research on Christian Education, v10 n2 p379-410 Fall 2001
Examines circumstances leading to the transition of Webster College, Missouri, from a Catholic women's college to a secular, co-educational university. The issue of identity was re-addressed at a critical juncture in Webster's history, as it dealt with its financial and enrollment difficulties. The study shows that influential role of leadership in defining and re-defining the institution's identity. (SM)
