The study assessed stakeholders’ participation in environmental management in the university system in Nigeria from a gender perspective. A sample size of 386 respondents in The Federal University of Technology, Akure, Nigeria provided answers to questions asked on the study. Kruskal-Wallis test results showed that the level of participation in energy saving activities is high for both male and female respondents. Female stakeholders show a moderately level of participation in efficient transportation and waste management activities while the male show high level of participation for waste management and moderately participation for efficient transportation. Consequently, the study advocated for periodic training for all stakeholders on university campus irrespective of their gender to equip them with knowledge and skills needed to participate in environmental management.
