This qualitative investigation uses institutional logics and organizational change theory as a lens to examine the ways in which the establishment and efforts of a multi-campus university consortium, focused on reengagement of adult learners for degree completion, have challenged dominant institutional logics and shifted organizational culture incrementally within a major research university system in the western United States. Through a critical analysis of documents (policies, websites, white papers, budgets, emails, speeches, symposium presentations, etc.), findings illuminate the ways in which auxiliary academic units (continuing and professional education divisions) – when working collaboratively as a community of practice – can act as catalysts for organizational change in higher education institutions with deeply embedded institutional logics. Implications for practice and future research are discussed with consideration for the potential applicability and transferability of findings in other education contexts internationally.
