The campus environment in a higher learning institution should be conducive to support the synergistic effects of its three basic functions namely: learning, social interactions and living. Campus conduciveness is rarely measured in the context of campus sustainability. This study will develop and establish Conducive Campus Environment (CCE) tools while measuring the level of conduciveness to improve the management of facilities, services, infrastructures and the physical environmental settings

It is implied in the context of campus sustainability initiatives at Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM), Johor, to fulfil the three basic pillars of sustainability, hence environmental, social and economic. The standardized structured questionnaires distributed among 380 students focus on facilities, services and infrastructures in the campus setting. An inferential factor analysis has been applied and the four levels of conduciveness have been developed. At last, the study reveals the adoption of CCE ca be an example on how sustainable balance score card adopted in higher learning institution. Abstrak Persekitaran kampus di sesebuah institusi pengajian tinggi perlu kondusif bagi menyokong kesan-kesan sinergi bagi tiga fungsi utamanya iaitu pembelajaran, interaksi sosial dan kehidupan. Kekondusifan kampus amat jarang diukur dalam konteks pelestarian kampus. Kajian ini akan membangun dan mewujudkan kaedah pengukuran Persekitaran Kampus Kondusif (CCE) di samping mengukur tahap kekondusifan bagi mempertingkatkan pengurusan fasiliti, perkhidmatan, infrastruktur, serta penetapan persekitaran fizikal kampus. Ianya termasuk di dalam konteks inisiatif pelestarian kampus Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM) Johor bagi memenuhi tiga tunggak asas pelestarian iaitu persekitaran, sosial dan ekonomi. Soal selidik berstruktur standard telah diedarkan kepada 380 pelajar yang menumpukan kepada fasiliti, perkhidmatan dan infrastruktur di dalam suasana tetapan kampus. Analisis faktor inferensi telah digunakan dan telah menghasilkan empat tahap kekondusifan. Akhirnya, kajian ini menunjukkan bahawa pengadaptasian CCE boleh menjadi satu contoh bagaimana kad skor imbangan lestari diaplikasikan di pusat pengajian tinggi. Kata kunci: Persekitaran kampus kondusif; pelestarian kampus; fasiliti; institusi pengajian tinggi; pelestarian; kad skor imbangan lestari
