This chapter empirically investigated the mediating effect of organizational culture, size and structure on the relationship between innovations and resilience in selected Nigerian universities. The descriptive research design was adopted. The respondents comprised Heads of Departments, Deans of Faculties, Directors, Registrars and Deputy Registrars, and Vice Chancellors and Deputy Vice Chancellors. The analyses of the data involved the use of multiple statistical procedures: Percentages, Mean, Chi-square (hypotheses 1-6) and One-way Analysis of Variance (ANOVA). ANOVA was used to test hypotheses 7-12, using the statistical package for social sciences (SPSS) version 21. The research instrument was quantitatively analyzed and an overall Cronbach alpha coefficient of .845 was realized. In this study, we gathered that significant relationship exists between product innovation and situation awareness, keystone vulnerabilities and adaptive capacity. Process innovation impact on situation awareness, keystone vulnerabilities and adaptive capacity. In addition, relationships were found between administrative innovation and situation awareness, keystone vulnerabilities and adaptive capacity. Correspondingly, we found that organizational culture, size and structure has a significant moderating relationship between innovation and resilience. Nigeria universities like other developing counties universities need effective innovation programs.
