Kurt Lewin’s work helps us understand organizational change and Elizabeth Kubler-Ross’ work gives us insight into personal change. Their work can help us understand the many dimensions of change that occur in our environment. Lewin contends that change can be planned for and Kubler-Ross proposes that change, even unexpected change, can be managed. This article will take a closer look, over a four-year period, at the process within a college unit moving towards national accreditation through the lens of the work of these two well-known researchers.
