In this study, we explore how academic inbreeding policies and practices might contribute to the research and teaching cultures at one of the technical public university in Turkey. Building on literature review and work on the relationship between academic inbreeding and the status of research in higher education institutions, we examine some of the mechanisms that map the territory of institutional research culture and trace the links between inbreeding policies and practices and scientific research and cultures. Along the research process, the data are drawn from Annual Strategic Planning Reports of the university and in-depth interviews were conducted with 22 faculty members. Findings revealed that there is a tendency to employ undergraduate and master degree inbreeds while mobility is supported at Ph.D. level.
