Educational institutions continue to operate in an environment of profound and disruptive change. Federal regulation, state financing, technology, and the changing needs of a diverse student population provide administrators and educators with opportunities to re-define programming, operations, and the means of achieving strategic goals.

Learning to Change examines all aspects of continuing higher education and the role that learning plays in both personal and organization change and asks: How do we help learners change their lives as we manage the changes required to serve our missions?
