The aim of this study is to determine the main reasons for institutionalism and change process in educational organizations by benefiting from the literature through a case study. In this scope, the language school of a private university that is currently undergoing an institutionalization process has been examined as a case study. In the case study, face-to-face interviews with three-level management and instructors have been conducted to get primary data. As a result of the study, external factors such as the increase in student enrollment within the university and the demand of the language skills increasing in the world have pushed the university to undergo this process. On the other hand, the high standards of the university to operate in international platforms have resulted in structural, academic, and administrative changes in the language school. During the process, it is seen that the only resistance exists in midlevel management; however, not against the system, but against the management style. This study is significant as being the pioneer analysis in educational organizations. It contributes to the literature as it is valuable as benchmark for other educational organizations, which plan to institutionalize. The study can be improved with further researches after the process in the language school is finalized.
