Organizational culture is considerable in institutions, it presupposes the acquisition of a set of common values ​and beliefs that guide the decisions and actions of its members; in it, subcultures are formed that survive in institutional life. In this sense, the objective of this work was to determine the cultural practices of teachers in Peruvian universities, for this purpose a questionnaire based on the Competing Values ​Model of Cameron and Quinn (2011) was applied to 384 professors from a Peruvian university. The results confirm the typologies of attributes built, corresponding to clan cultures (flexible and teamwork), adhocratic (creativity and initiative), market (competitiveness and productivity) and hierarchical (stability and control). In the teachers who teach in general studies and specialized studies, distinctive features were identified, marked by their institutional affiliations around teaching work, which are diametrically located, where the specialized studies teachers are ascribed to the hierarchical culture and, the from general studies to clan culture. It is concluded that, the valuation differences do not gravitate categorically in the institutional life, on the contrary, they would favor innovation and autonomy.
