  7. Abstract:
  8. The purpose of this study is to investigate the factors that strengthen and inhibit the integration of organizational units in the university environment, specifically the integration of the "support" unit and "human resources" unit, which in this study is called "human capital"unit. In the integration literature, the integration of the two units of support and human capital has been less discussed. In particular, it seems that this issue needs more research in the academic environment with its own characteristics.This is an exploration research with the qualitative method and according to a case study of the Sharif University of Technology. To answer the research questions, several interviews were conducted with experts in the related field, former and current senior and middle managers of these two units and other key related people, and the data were analyzed by the thematic analysis method. Finally, five main categories are identified that indicate the factors that strengthen and inhibit the integration of support and human capital departments in universities. The obtained factors include "cooperation of managers and officials at different levels with the integration plan", "existing culture and values", "university administrative rules and procedures", "structure" and "general agreement".
