The effect of gender on environmental concern among samples of college students in the Middle East is examined in this article. The current study investigates gender's influence on environmental awareness, degree of support for efforts to solve environmental problems, and willingness to make personal contribution to solve environmental problems. Data were obtained from the Unit for Community and Environmental Studies in the SSRC at Mississippi State University. To achieve the objectives of this study, Factor Analysis and multiple regressions were used. In line with the literature, the results indicate inconsistent and unclear effect of gender on levels of concern about the environment in the Middle East.
