Discovering the Culture of Collaboration in an Institutional Merger
In 2006 The University of Toledo (UT) and the Medical University of Ohio (MUO) merged to become one institution. Using the Multinet social network analysis program, we highlight a method for examining collaboration between faculty at the university’s main campus and health science campuses between 2003 and 2013. Results show that very limited cross campus collaboration occurred over the study period, with less than three percent of the grants exhibiting cross campus collaboration. This paper is significant because it highlights a replicable process for converting and examining a grants database in a collaborative network as a leading indicator of collaboration.
