The lack of universities in Indonesia that are ranked as the best in the world is an issue that needs to be considered together by the government, state universities, and the private sector. In addition to this, issues regarding the quality of graduates, effective and efficient institution management, and various internal organizational conflicts also pose a higher education dilemma. These problems must begin to be elaborated from the aspect of culture / web of significance and the structure of higher education that encompasses the actions of agents/actors. Actors in higher education are tiered actors namely the Chancellor, Dean, and Chair of the Study Program. The actions of tiered actors in higher educations need to be investigated in depth with the extended case method (ECM), to determine the typology and tendencies and dialectics. In achieving high quality, managers in managing higher education should not be affected by cultures other than the culture of the higher education industry. Culture in organizations is born because people do things from their ideas, behavior and values. The impact, understanding and describing the culture of life cannot be separated from the human actions involved.
