The purpose of this study is to find the influence of the dimensions of motivation and locus of control on the dimensions of organizational commitment. Data was collected from 250 state university teachers of Punjab. The findings reveal that the state university teachers are more intrinsically motivated rather than extrinsically. Also, they show highest affective commitment, followed by continuance commitment and normative commitment. A significant positive relation of external locus of control with continuance commitment and extrinsic motivation with normative commitment is found. This reveals that higher level of external locus of control leads to higher continuance commitment, though insignificant, while extrinsic motivation leads to higher sense of organizational obligation.


A teacher, besides being an educator, is also a facilitator, counselor and a guide. The motivation, the commitment and the self-belief of teachers would lead not only to a higher quality of education but would lay the foundation of a prosperous nation.
