The primary purpose of this research was to verify the impact of a school's organizational changes on organizational effectiveness. The research object was a university of science and technology in Taiwan with organizational citizenship behavior (OCB) and organizational culture as the mediating variables. Convenience sampling was adopted to get samples from the population. SEM was used to verify the goodness-of-fit of this research's overall model and its structural model and measure model. Then, aiming at the path coefficient among the “implicit variables” (or called latent variables) of the structural model the Sobel Test was conducted with the maximum likelihood estimation (MLE) to examine whether the direct effects, mediating effects, and overall effects of the model was significant. The research results showed that the impact of organizational effectiveness by the school organization change has an “insignificant” direct effect and a “significant” mediating effect. Mediating effect was shown through the two mediators, “organizational citizenship behavior” and “organizational culture”.
