Change happens over time. It takes planning, structure and follow through. According to Marquis and Huston (2017), many attempts for change fail due to lack of structure and planning. Change agents, or people that are educated in the theory and implementation of change, are necessary many times for a change to be successful. There are several change theories that have been perfected over the years, including theories from Lewin, Rogers, and Lippitt.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
