The sample used in the study included 307 bachelor students who graduated during academic year 2009-2011 selected by stratified random sampling. The instrument used to collect data was a five-point rating scale questionnaire of 8 sub-scale with a total of 120 items. The reliability of the sub-scales range from. 794-.941. The statistical methods used to analyze the data included percentage, mean, standard deviation, Pearson product -moment correlation , and step-wise multiple regression.</p> <p>The results were as follows :</p> <p>1) Dhurakij Pundit students’ institutional commitment were at high level.</p> <p>2) Factors affecting Dhurakij Pundit students’ institutional commitment were: personality (x<sub>3</sub>), teacher-student relationship (X<sub>4</sub>), relationship among friends (X<sub>5</sub>), learning atmosphere (x<sub>6</sub>), facility (x<sub>7</sub>), academic activity (x<sub>8</sub>), and off-classroom activity (x<sub>9</sub>). These factors had statistical significant relationship with students’ institutional commitment at .01 level. 3) Factors included in the equations predicting students’ institutional commitment were: personality (x<sub>3</sub>) learning atmosphere (x<sub>6</sub>), off-classroom activity (x<sub>9</sub>) academic activity (x<sub>8</sub>), facility (x<sub>7</sub>), and teacher-student relationship (x<sub>4</sub>) respectively. These factors could explain the variance of Dhurakij Pundit students’ institutional commitment up to 66.10 percent. From overall results, the equation predicting students’ institutional commitment could be expressed as follows :</p> <p>Y = .410 + .260(X<sub>3</sub>) + .176(X<sub>6</sub>) +.163(X<sub>9</sub>) +.161(X<sub>8</sub>) +.106(X<sub>7</sub>) + .089(X<sub>4</sub>)</p> <p>Z = .239(X<sub>3</sub>) + .211(X<sub>9</sub>) + .188(X<sub>8</sub>) +.183(X<sub>6</sub>) +.130(X<sub>7</sub>) + .090(X<sub>4</sub>)</p>}, number={88}, journal={Suthiparithat }, author={Meesan นักรบ and Skulkhu จารุวรรณ and Phothisuk อรรณพ and Suthummaraksa สุชาดา}, year={2020}, month={Jul.}, pages={255–270} }
