This case study examines the organizational changes and alignment that took place at Northern Kentucky University to enhance the public engagement agenda. Participants included 31 faculty members and five administrators. Based on qualitative interviews, 13 themes emerged related to change strategy needed to support public engagement as a core mission and value of the university. Findings suggest that Northern Kentucky University was successful in enabling a public engagement mission and vision, but that ongoing efforts are needed to continue past success. Further, the findings related to the change strategy are likely applicable to other changes at the university and should continue to be explored for future major planned change initiatives.
