The present research aimed at determining the effects of organizational culture on a university’s academic staff knowledge management. A total of 63 academic members from the Faculty of Physical Education at Islamic Azad University in East Azabaijan, West Azarbaijan, Zajan, and Ardabil Provinces, Iran, voluntarily filled out two questionnaires: the Denison Organizational Culture (DOC) and Lawson Knowledge Management Assessment (KMA). The collected data were analyzed using Pearson correlations, linear regression and multiple regressions. Pearson correlation analysis showed the existence of a positive and significant correlation between organizational culture and knowledge management (r = .611, p < .01). The result indicated that organizational culture has a significant positive influence on knowledge management. Only one component of mission (organizational culture indices) has a significant positive influence on knowledge management. The results also showed that knowledge management has been affected 37.4% by organizational culture.
