The Center for the Study of Organizational Change (CSOC) was established in 1996. For the last 20 years our scholars have explored the psychosocial and relational dimensions (political, economic, and cultural) of organizational life in all kinds of organizations.

Our goals are to:

  • Engage a wide range of scholars across disciplines
  • Provide experiential learning opportunites for students
  • Provide meaningful service to public, private, and nonprofit organizations
  • CSOC researchers and scholars apply theory in practice through organizational assessment and diagnosis, and change facilitation. This practice creates a rich context for generating and elaborating theories of organizational culture, leadership, and change.
