Purpose
This study developed and validated the consistency of a structural equation model of factors influencing the effectiveness of campus recreation management.

Methods
The study involved 416 teachers and administrators, enrolled with multistage sampling in four university groups: public universities, Rajamangala University of Technology, Rajabhat University, and private universities. The data collection tool was a 5-rating-scale questionnaire. The data were analysed with descriptive statistics. The validity of the structural equation model was tested with the LISREL 8.72 software.

Results
The study proved that the structural equation model was consistent with the empirical data, with a statistical significance level of 0.05 (2 = 124.75, df = 83, p = 0.048, RMSEA = 0.035, GFI = 0.93, AGFI = 0.96).

Conclusions
The factors influencing the effectiveness of campus recreation management ordered from the highest to lowest mean score were: organization characteristics, internal environment, employee characteristics, and managerial policies and practices. The independent variables in the structural equation model could explain 68% of the variation in the effectiveness of campus recreation management.
