Abstract

This paper describes the renewal of mission at three liberal arts colleges. Based on interviews with 77 participants and the review of more than 2,000 pages of institutional documents, the study explores how groups of individuals responded to an institutional crisis by seeking a more satisfying institutional life. The paper draws parallels between these efforts at mission-centered change and socio-cultural movement theory.
