This research intends to explain the nature of communication and its strategic role from the perspective of faculty deans. In other words, the aim of the research is to analyze the perspectives of faculty deans on communication and its strategic functional role in the organization. The research theme is clarified by three subquestions: What is the function of communication in the organizations from the perspectives of deans? What are the principal advantages and disadvantages of the communication function in the organizations? Lastly, how does the faculty dean perceive himself/herself as a communicator in the management of the organization? Qualitative approach is applied through ten semistructured interviews of faculty deans in the university. The research findings reveal that the nature and functions of communication in the organization are important and are perceived as a vital element of university management. Moreover, the function of communication is confirmed as a key element to success in the strategic plans and in the organizational context of universities.
