A Case Study of Relationships between Organizational Culture and Curricular Change in Engineering Education
Merton, Prudence; Froyd, Jeffrey E.; Clark, M. Carolyn; Richardson, Jim
Innovative Higher Education, v34 n4 p219-233 Oct 2009
We examined two curricular change efforts at a small, midwestern engineering and science college in order to explore how organizational culture influences curricular change processes. We found that the failure of one effort (measured by inability to sustain the curriculum over time) and the success of the other (the curriculum continues to be offered by the institution) were directly linked to how well the change strategies aligned with the culture of the institution.
