Abstract

University values have lately been manifesting themselves through the culture of quality. Current society, which has progressed to post-modernity, presupposes the formation of a new culture in organisations. The given research investigates the contexts for the (self-)formation of the culture of dialogue, which are receptive to the current development of modern society. So far, the essence and manifestation of this dialogue have been more emphasised through global cultural characteristics. The article seeks to highlight multicultural characteristics and to individualise the manifestation of the culture of dialogue when managing a higher education institution. Analysing the importance of higher education quality in postmodern society and grand political narratives in maintaining the culture of dialogue, the article highlights socio-cultural contexts of managing the quality of science and studies, grounded on the dialogue of culture.
