University Organizational Culture through Insider Eyes: A Case Study of a Writing Program
Orton, Haley; Conley, Sharon
International Journal of Educational Leadership and Management, v4 n1 p48-71 Jan 2016
Using a case study approach, the authors examined university administrator and instructor perspectives about a writing program's organizational culture. In so doing, members of the writing program were invited to participate in interviews over a three-year period. This qualitative case study suggests that examples of culture through a three-lens perspective (integration, differentiation, and fragmentation) provided a more nuanced reading of the program's identity than a single lens could. The authors suggest that this multi-frame view of organizational culture for understanding policy and practice has implications for academic program leadership.
