The competing values framework was used to describe the organizational culture type exhibited by Ohio State University Extension (OSU Extension) personnel. This framework assesses the dominant organizational culture based on four culture types: Clan, Hierarchy, Adhocracy, and Market. OSU Extension personnel exhibited a Clan culture type as dominant in both the current and preferred situations. The Clan culture portrays OSU Extension as an organization that concentrates on internal maintenance with flexibility, concern for people, and sensitivity for customers. The study suggests implications for Extension nationwide.
