Morphew, Christopher C.; Huisman, Jeroen
Higher Education in Europe, v27 n4 p491-506 2002
Examines patterns of academic drift (a drift toward the structure and norms typical of more prestigious universities) in multiple higher education systems and tests the concept of "isomorphism in organizational fields" as discussed in institutional theory. Argues that the theoretical framework provided by institutional theory presents a useful lens through which to examine and explain why academic drift occurs in higher education systems. (EV)
