The present study determines the effect of organizational culture on commitment using 411 faculty members in higher education private institutes of Punjab, Pakistan. Instruments including organizational commitment having three subscales including continuance, affective and normative commitment (Myers & Allen, 1988) and organizational culture (Yang, 2003) were used. Principal component and multiple regression analyses were computed and results detected a significant positive impact of the above three aspects of the organizational culture on commitment of teaching faculty. The study suggested that low level of normative commitment weakens the overall organizational commitment of teachers.
