In this paper، drawing on Coleman's concept of social capital and Bourdieu's concept of cultural capital، the effects of different components of family social and cultural capital (i.e. family expectations of student's academic aspirations، family involvement in student's academic activities،…) on academic achievement of high school students were studied.Using a questionnaire، data were gathered on the academic performance of 393 students who were selected (on the basis of cluster sampling) from different boys and girls high schools in the city of Isfahan in the academic year of 1385-86 (2006-7).Research findings showed that the coefficient of direct effect of capital (which included social and cultural capital) on academic achievement was 0.43 and that its difference from zero was statistically significant. Therefore، the major hypothesis of the study that family social and cultural capitals have a positive influence of academic performance was supported.

The population of this study included all the faculty members of the University of Isfahan (476 cases) of whom 142 cases were selected based on Cochran formula. A questionnaire was used for data collection and the method employed in this study was survey. For analyzing data and testing the hypotheses، both descriptive statistics (Percentage، frequency، mean، standard deviation) and inferential statistics (Pearson r and regression) were used. The findings reveal that institutional culture has effects on the amount of knowledge creation of the faculty members and among the variables، ""orientation towards social behavior"" which is one of the dimensions of institutional culture، has had the most effects on knowledge creation. Accordingly، revised coefficient of determination reveals that 20% of the variance of the dependent variable (knowledge creation) has been due to variables functioning on regression model. The rest of the variance is due to other variables not investigated in this study.
