The study aimed to study the three component model of organizational commitment among administrative staff of University of Punjab. It was hypothesized that there would be a positive relation between three components of organizational commitment (affective, continuous, and normative commitment), significant gender differences in organizational commitment and significant relationship between organizational commitment and job experience. The sample consisted of (N = 100) participants, males (n = 50) and females (n = 50), drawn through non probability based purposive sampling technique from different departments of University of Punjab. Self constructed Demographic Scale and Organizational Commitment Scale (Meyer & Allen, 1991) was used. Results were generated through Pearson Product Moment Correlation and independent sample t-test and indicated that there was no significant correlation between three components of organizational commitment, no significant gender differences in organizational commitment. However, significant negative correlation was found between organizational commitment and job experience. In Pakistan, more research should be done in this area and with different organizational groups so that findings can be extrapolated to greater population.
