Abstract: This dissertation focuses on the coeducational transition of a public woman's college in the South: The Woman's College of The University of North Carolina. The study is conducted within the context of organizational change in higher education. It is a historical case study that focuses on the importance of the external and internal political forces that facilitate change within institutions of higher education. The theoretical framework is centered around J. Victor Baldridge's: Power and Conflict in Universities (1971). Baldridge's study focuses on the changes at New York University during the 1960's. While the changes at NYU are different from the coeducational transition of The Woman's College, Baldridge's model is a useful and fitting guide for examining organizational change in a collegiate setting.
