The researcher examined some lecturers’ demographic variables and their knowledge sharing behaviour among Universities in South-East, Nigeria. Two research questions and two hypotheses guided the study. The study adopted survey research design of the inferential type. Two instruments: inventory and rating scale, were used for the study. The sample size for the study was 350 lecturers in Southeast Universities. The stratified disproportionate and simple random sampling techniques were employed in selecting this sample size. The reliability index of the instrument was found to be 0.86 computed using Cronbach alpha technique. The research questions were answered using descriptive statistics (mean and standard deviation). While hypotheses one was tested using independent sample z-test, hypothesis two was tested using ANOVA F-test at 0.05 level of significance. Some of the findings of the study are: that gender had a significant influence on the knowledge sharing behaviours of lecturers; and there was a significant influence of academic rank on knowledge sharing of the university lecturers. Based on these findings, the researcher made some recommendations which include that the university management should create massive campaign about the need for university lecturers to embrace knowledge sharing among themselves and others
