Institutional Collaborative Culture and Task Accomplishment in Universities
Asian Journal of Arts, Humanities and Social Studies, Volume 6, Issue 2,
This study investigated institutional collaborative culture and task accomplishment in universities. The study adopted the correlational design. The variables of institutional collaborative culture such as teamwork, dynamic support, the delegation of duty, and norms and values were discussed concerning task accomplishment. The study used a target population of 200 which comprised principal officers (office of the Vice Chancellor, Heads of Departments, Bursary Dept., Student Union Government, Estate/Works, Professors, and others) of the Rivers State University and Ignatius Ajuru University of Education in Port Harcourt. An instrument titled Institutional Collaborative Culture and Accomplishment of Tasks in Universities in Rivers State Questionnaire (ICCATURSQ) was used to collect data from respondents. The instrument was a modified four-point Likert Scale instrument of Very High Extent (VHE-4), High Extent (HE-3), Low Extent (LE-2), Very Low Extent (VLE-1). The study adopted a stratified sampling technique. A sample size of 110 was used and a total of 100 copies representing 90% were duly completed and returned which was used in the analysis. The Research questions were answered using the mean and standard deviation and the Hypotheses were tested using regression. The study concluded that the identified items of the institutional collaborative culture of teamwork, dynamic support, norms, and values showed a significant relationship with task accomplishment. Whereas delegation of duty showed that there is no significant relationship with task accomplishment. The study thereby recommended among others that management of universities at all levels of operation should encourage teamwork practices by providing adequate support to staff in all angles of operations in the university system.
