This study entitled "Level of Discipline Among University Academic Staff as a Correlate of University Development in Nigeria" adopted the correlation design with a population of 2,301 academic staff purposively selected from four Universities in the North-Central Geo-Political zone of Nigeria. The Stratified Random Sampling Method was used to select 287 and 289 senior and junior academic staff respectively (giving a total of total 576). A four-point scale rating Discipline Inventory Questionnaire was used to collect data. Mean scores, Standard Deviations and Pearson Product Moment Correlation (r) were used in answering the research questions while Pearson Product Moment Correlation (r) and t-test were used to test the hypotheses at 0.05 level of significance. The results showed that there is low level of discipline among the academic staff of Nigerian universities; a positive relationship exists between level of discipline among university academic staff and level of development of the universities; academic staff in universities located in urban areas had a higher level of discipline than their counterparts in universities located in the rural areas; and that junior academics have better level of discipline than their senior counterparts. Based on the findings, it was recommended amongst others that the government should ensure that the teaching of moral education be intensified at the University level.
