The dimensions of the causes leading to organizational silence came in a medium degree and an average of (3.13). The most important of which was the ambiguity and overlap of the role of the faculty member with other roles, and the focus of procedural proposals came to overcome the organizational silence among faculty members. Qassim University has a very high degree of approval and an average of (4,387).
