ABSTRACT

The objective is to examine the factors, which affect self-discipline as good citizens for undergraduates. The samples were employed with 1,407 undergraduates from 18 faculties by Stratified Random Sampling. The instrument was 5-rating–scale questionnaire consisting of 89 items for self-discipline as good citizens and 84 items for measuring 9 causal factors classified as 5 aspects of student level and 4 aspects of faculty level. A Multilevel Path Analysis was used for data analysis by Mplus 7.4 program. The results showed that the democratic child rearing, the discipline prototype, and the discipline environment had positive effects. On the other hand, the media effect and the discipline climate had the negative effects on self-discipline. All factors explained variances of self-discipline between student and faculty were 39.90 % and 98.40%, respectively.
