Many schools find systemic reform difficult to implement as there are many factors and stakeholders who may hinder this initiative. This case study looks into systemic reform process in a higher education institution through policy document analysis and participant observation. It also reports the process of aligning the vision, standards, and assessment in a department. The results showed that systemic school reform can be realized with a leadership that can align the curriculum, pedagogical framework, and professional development. The consensus-building processes in the department level were also seen as a mechanism to ensure that every member of the faculty would share a common vision for the students. © 2013, Plata; licensee Springer.
