This paper explores the challenges of galvanizing substantive change within the academy. By focusing on the arrival of a new president and his strategic desire to institute an interdisciplinary honors college amidst a traditionally fractionalized campus, the authors explore the dynamics of change within the organizational structure of The University of Vermont. Through this exploration the authors offer a forward-looking perspective on the critical importance of leadership and followership among university subcultures in affecting transformational change in higher education.
