Abstract

The paper describes a study of change in the diversity of U.S. colleges and universities from 1972–2002. Replicating the methods used by Birnbaum, the study uses institutional theory and its concepts to explore why the larger system of colleges and universities in U.S. grew less diverse during this period.
