The objective of this study was to find out the mediating role of Psychological Capital (PC) between the relationships of work engagement (W.E) and job performance (J.P) in teachers of public universities of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Sindh, Panjab and Balochestan. Data were collected from four hundred and fifteen (N=415) faculty members including Lecturers (N=172), Assistant Professor (N=114), Associate Professors (N=95) and Professors (N=34). Structure Equation Modeling (SEM) was used to investigate the interrelationship among PC, W.E and J.P. Barron and Kenny’s (1986) rules for testing the mediating role of a variable between the relationship of independent and dependent variable were used in this study. The results of correlation showed that W.E, PC and J.P were significantly interrelated. The 3-factor model confirmed that PC partially mediated the relationship between W.E and J.P.
