This study diagnoses six areas in the College of St. Benilde (CSB) Using Weisbord's Organizational Model. The six areas in Weisbord's model include purpose, structure, leadership, relationship, rewards, helpful mechanisms, and an additional area of the members of CSB's attitude towards change. Weisbord's model is actually a study on the perception of the members of CSB towards the said areas. This study made use of randomly selected Administrators, Teaching and Non-Teaching staff of the College of St. Benilde. Twenty-six percent of the total population were used as respondents to a questionnaire survey and interview. The questionnaire measured the six areas through randomly arranged questions which pertains to the six areas of the study. The interview probed deeper into the specific six areas as perceived by the members of CSB. Simple mean analysis was used to find out the dominant problem areas of study as perceived by the members of CSB. Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) was used to find the difference in the perception of the three groups (Administrators, Teaching and Non-Teaching Staff) of study. Findings have shown that CSB's purpose, relationship among it's members, reward system, helpful mechanisms and its members' attitude towards change have been perceived by its members as problem areas. There is need to further clarify the purpose of the College of St. Benilde.

There is also a need to further clarify the kind of the relationships among the members of the College of St. Benilde. Further, teambuilding seminars should be done to improve the quality of relationships. Further studies on the relationship among the members must center on conflict resolution among the members of the different units of CSB. The CSB members had the highest mean on reward system which clearly indicates that they are not satisfied with the existing reward/incentive system. Involving the CSB members to the different coordinating/helping mechanisms can clarify what these processes are to them. With the many changes that the school is currently and constantly introducing, this study found that its members need orientations on how they can adapt to these changes and not be forced to just accept these changes.A wider scope of areas to be studied can still be investigated further than this study, using a larger number of samples.
