Deviance behaviors and social undermining are related with other organizational variables. The purpose of this research was to study relationship between social undermining and co-creation with mediation role of organization based self- esteem among faculty members of higher ranking universities in Iran. The study adopted a descriptive – correlational method. The statistical population of the study consisted university faculty members in Iran, from which 384 members were selected as the participants using stratified random sampling consistent with the sample size.
Co-creation were examined using a researcher-made questionnaire based on co-creation DART model and social undermining was examined using Duffy et al. questionnaire (2002) and OBSE was examined using Pierce et al. questionnaire (1989).The construct validity of the scales was examined using confirmatory factor analysis. Through Cronbach’s alpha coefficient, reliability coefficients were obtained equal to 0.95, 0.95 & 0.93. The results of research indicated that when co-creation variable was independent and social undermining was dependent variable, suggested model has goodness of fit with the obtained data and there is significant relationship between social undermining and co-creation. But mediator role of organization based self- esteem was not meaningful at 0.05 level of significance and there isn’t significant relationship between co-creation and organization based self- esteem.
