This study employs structural equation modelling to examine the determinants of multicultural identities from the perspective of the cognitive-developmental model of social identity integration (CDMII) framework. Categorisation, compartmentalisation, and integration were hypothesised to explain multicultural identity and its effect on well-being and performance. Purposive sampling via survey method involved 288 educators from Malaysian Universities. The findings confirmed that multicultural identity constructs have direct and significant relationship with well-being and well-being has direct and positive relationship with the performance of multicultural team.
