The study was a correlation research design that investigated relationship between internal school crisis and university effectiveness in Nigeria. The target population was academic staff of three universities in a Nigerian State from which a sample of 611 academic staff was chosen using a stratified sampling technique. The instrument tagged “Internal School Crisis and University Effectiveness Questionnaire (ISCUEQ)” was adopted to collect data. Test-retest method reliability test was carried out to obtain reliability coefficient of 0.72. Mean, standard deviation, and Pearson product moment statistics were used to analyze data at 0.05 significant level. The finding revealed, among others, a significant relationship between staff/management Crisis and university effectiveness while Interpersonal crisis among staff was not significantly related with university effectiveness. It was recommended that the Nigerian government should fulfill every agreement entered into with workers union and the university administration should allow staff unions to operate on campus.
