DescriptionIntuitions of higher education (IHE) are in a period of immense disruption due to student demographic changes, economic pressures, and approaches to student learning. These swirling forces are driving IHE to consider and pursue systemic organizational, cultural, and pedagogical changes to fulfill their missions and remain financially viable. Though the desire for change is strong, most change initiatives fail due to an incomplete understanding of how faculty feel and respond to a change. By investigating attributes of change readiness, this paper examines the mediating factors that govern faculty’s response to change as a mechanism to inform future change implementation processes.
