Among subsets of structural factors, the payment system (average rank of 2.5, mean=2.21±0.72 and p-value ≤0.001), behavioral factors, and job security (mean rank = 2.03, mean=2.28±0.93 and p-value ≤0.001) and among subsets of contextual factors, customer-orientation (mean rank= 1.31, mean=3.07±0.70 and p-value 0.19) had the most impact on organizational pathology in this university. Conclusion: Considering that the behavioral factors had the greatest impact to the damages, it seems that the university has to adopt programs and policies in terms of creating appropriate organizational culture, increasing motivation and job satisfaction, adopting effective leadership, providing opportunities for training and development of employees and improving job security for the staff.
