Use the cultural dimensions listed in Figure 3.5 to assess the culture of your
school. Instead of employees, consider students, and instead of management, use
faculty. For example, member identity refers to the degree to which students identify
with the school as a whole rather than their major or option. Either as individuals or in
small groups, rate the culture of your school on the 10 dimensions.
a. Which dimensions were easy to evaluate and which were not?
b. How strong is the culture of your school?
c. What functions does the culture serve for your school?
d. Do you think the culture of your school is best suited to maximizing your learning?
Why or why not?
e. What kind of projects would be easy to implement in your school and what kind of
projects would be difficult, given the structure and culture of your school? Explain
