Evaluation of Institutional Culture

The University of Houston is undertaking a process to evaluate and strengthen its institutional culture.

  • Assessment of the University’s current culture and how it affects outcomes for faculty, staff, and students
  • Recommendations for aligning the University’s culture with national standards and best practices through appropriate changes in policies, practices, professional development and training, traditions, and/or new departments, programs or services
  • Development of a strategic plan for implementing the recommendations and assessing the University’s culture on an ongoing basis

Keeling & Associates, LLC (K&A) is working with a Steering Committee charged by the University to support this process, which will include the engagement and input of the greater campus community, including leadership, faculty, staff, and students.
