Much argument has been made as a citizen without empirical and scientific basis about how change management practices tend to influence higher educational institutions. This research entitled, "Evaluation of change management practices of Ethiopian higher educational institutions- case of some selected public Universities", opts to evaluate the prevailing change management practices In the selected Universities and paralleled consequences. Laying its ground on various individual and organizational change management theories it is believed to provide useful insights. To this end, primary as well as secondary sources of data were employed out of which qualitative information has emanated. A sample was selected on a probability basis using stratified sampling technique from the sampling frame. The core findings indicated that changes are imposed on unaware stakeholders, the change management experience is witnessing uncoordinated efforts, the universities are suffering from wrong perception of change by stakeholders, loose integrity among them, absence of open and transparent dealing with stakeholders which obscure harmony, no mutual collaboration on change aspects and total marginalization of stakeholders as well as irrational complaint and blaming than creating an environment of mutual collaboration to succeed with changes through appropriate management of change individually as well as at the whole organizational level.
