Abstract: This study investigates youth civic development in the Malaysian higher education context. The findings described in this study represent the preliminary data obtained through the pre-test procedure. This pre-test study used a sample of 40 undergraduate students in Kualalumpur, Selangor State. Civic disposition recorded the highest mean score; nevertheless, the intensity investedin civic disposition can not support students in reinforcing their civic engagement as this construct showed the lowest mean score. The results discussed only prove the preliminary findings, although the results are expected to represent a possible prediction of what the actual data will be.
