This study examined the impact of work-family conflict on commitment to organization in public and private universities of Pakistan. The study also specifically determined work-family conflict and the degree of differences between men and women, single and married individuals, and faculty members of public and private universities. Seventy-two faculty members completed Work-Family Conflict Scale (Carlson, Kacmar, & Williams, 2000) and Organizational Commitment Scale (Allen & Meyer, 2000). Regression analysis suggested negative impact of work-family conflict on organizational commitment As hypothesized, three-way ANOVA revealed that married faculty members had high degree of work-family conflict compared to single status faculty members, however no significant differences of work-family conflict were found between men and women or public and private university faculty members and the interactions were also insignificant. This study proposes that for married faculty members family load can lead to reduction in organizational commitment.
