Four Pillars of the Green University Soft Infrastructure: Towards a Non-Linear Model of Innovation

Abstract:

Universities are isomorphic not because of the effectiveness of their processes but because of the legitimacy assigned by institutional logic. However, sustainable development discourses invoke a novel mission for producing knowledge and innovation for sustainable development. Accordingly, this research collected data from five types of internal stakeholders’ intellections of the four pillars of green university infrastructure. The analysis of data collected from 89 university stakeholders sufficient for a 90% confidence level with 5% relative tolerable error was organized as five groups in a contingency table for the chi-square test. The statistical analysis, that is, the chi-square value, indicates that all five stakeholders perceive in the same direction – that the four pillars of the green university soft infrastructure need to be reconfigured to produce green knowledge and innovation. Hence, the findings inspire the conventional universities and policymakers to transform their universities into sustainable institutions with four pillars of soft green infrastructure.
