Abstract:This study explores the transformation of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (a large, selective, land grant, research institution) during the years of 1968 to 2001 through the eyes of an intended change agent. Following the April 1968 assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign decided to admit 500 "talented" minority students for the fall 1968 semester and to create a Special Educational Opportunities Program. Utilizing story telling as scholarship, epistemological considerations of race and talking across differences, and drawing from a theoretical framework of servant leadership, a portrait of a gifted administrator emerges. This study contributes to the discussion of how much and what kind of transformation has occurred during the last thirty years at one selective university.
