The research objectives: to analyze the moderate role of spiritual leadership on the relationship between ethical behavior, quality of work life and job satisfaction on the organizational commitment of lecturers at an Islamic private university. Questionnaires were given to a population of 1,637 lecturers who work at Islamic private universities located in the Higher Education Service Institute Region IX Sultanbatara, with a valid sample of 323 lecturers. After the analysis of normality, validity, and reliability, the overall model meets the test criteria through PLS SEM (partial least square structural equation modeling). The moderate negative role of spiritual leadership on the relationship between ethical behavior and organizational commitment (t = 2,532, p < .05) was statistically supported. It was also found that spiritual leadership had a moderating role in the relationship between quality of work life and organizational commitment (t = 2,962, p < .05). Spiritual leadership as a moderator does not show a moderating effect between job satisfaction and organizational commitment.
