Abstract

This study aims to provide exploratory and confirmatory factor analysis of collaboration model between Local Administrative Organizations (LAOs) and Community Learning Centers (CLCs) in non-formal higher education management in southern Thailand. The study was conducted in eighteen CLCs using questionnaires with participants of 450. Those participants divided into 4 groups: LAOs chiefs, teachers, CLCs committees, and students. The confirmatory factor analysis was run. The findings of the factor analysis showed that the components of collaboration was comprised of four main-factors: (1) the standardization main-factor shows the relationship between the organization's standards, (2) the formalization main-factor refers to the relationship of the organization's formality, (3) the reciprocity main-factor showed the exchange of resources with each other for a good organization's relationship, (4) and the intensity main-factor explains the increase in the intensity of the organization's relationship. Therefore, the collaboration between LAOs and CLCs in non-formal higher education management will improve if the four main-factors have been employed.
