  • Published : 2008.07.28


The purpose of this study is to give some suggestions by examining what kind of effects the cynicism about the organizational change of the administrative staff in private colleges have on their job involvement and organizational commitment and by analyzing the difference between the colleges having experienced labor-management disputes and those without such experiences. The results of this study obtained by actual analyses and the suggestions provided based on the results are as follows. In the colleges having experienced disputes on campus, the cynicism about the organizational change reduces the job involvement and the organizational commitment of the members of the organizations. On the other hand, there are no significant effects of the cynicism about the organizational change on the job involvement and the organizational commitment of the members in the case of the colleges not having experienced disputes on campus.
