African education system is not without impediments to its lofty goals of training and supplying highly
skilled manpower which are capable of aiding her in her quest for growth and development. Inclusive of
these impediments is the commitment of staff towards work in campus communities. Empirical studies
addressing job commitments of workers in wage labour have identified a number of areas of concerns for
improvement. Prominent among these areas are work-related phenomena which fall within the four walls
of organisations. Yet there is dearth of empirical works digging into the environment of citadels of learning
with a view to explaining work commitments of staff therein. This paper reviewed concepts, theories and
empirical literature in order to unveil new areas for future research regarding work environment and staff
commitment in campus communities. If empirical probing is done to fill the gaps uncovered in this review,
the scope of our knowledge will be widen, job commitment among staff in educational institutions will be
better understood and possible decline will be mitigated.
Key words: campus communities, job commitments, literature review, research, work environments.
