Considers the nature of change in higher education institutions, and offers an explanation for why change occurs as it does in colleges and universities. The author cites multiple goals and measures of success, coupled with an anti-authoritarian institutional culture in the business of providing services rather than products, as reasons why change often occurs slowly and circuitously. In addition, five change-inhibitors peculiar to the public sector are examined, and suggestions for implementing change in public higher education are provided.
