Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to determine the critical factors that need to be practiced by management of university in successfully implementing the Sustainable Campus Operation (SCO) initiatives at Malaysian universities, as well as to classify the Critical Success Factors (CSFs) into several related groups employing factor analysis function by SPSS software. As much as 23 listed governance success factors items in the questionnaire are constructed based on rigorous literature reviews aligned with the objectives of this study. For this study, judgmental sampling techniques are used and the main target of respondents are individuals who hold administrative posts such as Director, Assistant Director, Head of Department/Unit, Assistant Registrar, and other related posts at the Development and Facility Management Office and Sustainable Campus Department/Unit. The analysis allows the factors formation without any early intervention during questionnaire design work. By referring to the descriptive result, only fourteen (14) out of twenty-three (23) success factors are considered as critical factors. Therefore, based on the results from factor analysis, the fourteen (14) CSFs were then classified appropriately under 2 common groups namely; Governance set up to perform SCO initiatives (GovF) and Accountability to improve performance of SCO initiatives (AccF). This study has important contribution to the researchers in the field of campus management related to sustainability by highlighting the importance of the campus to consider the governance support and accountability in analysing and making decision of any potential initiatives towards green campus operations at Malaysian public universities. In fact, it can be a reference in assisting people involved to recognize exactly what factors are most important in implementing the SCO initiatives towards sustainable universities in Malaysia.
