Summary This thesis is a case study that describes and analyses a higher education restructuring, namely: the amalgamation of two faculties in an Australian university. The findings of the study reveal that the restructuring impacted staff and students which included changes in job positions, redundancies, emotional impacts, extra work demands, loss of institutional identity and status, loss of support from the administrative staff and disrupting academic affairs. This study further shows that higher education nowadays is all about market values and that globalization changes the way a university operates and reforms.
