This article intended to determine the important elements in commitment, satisfaction and job performance of university lecturers. This study involved 179 respondents from 3 universities located in Batam, Indonesia. The survey instrument had used a 5-point Likert scale to obtain feedback.

The data obtained was processed using exploratory factor analysis (EFA) to examine the structure of commitment, satisfaction, and performance factors. Overall, the instrument, which was the questionnaire, was valid. It was found, based on the EFA, that the three important factors were commitment, satisfaction, and performance.
