And also see if the lecturers are ready if work from anywhere returns. This research belongs to the type of quantitative research, with partial analysis method Least Square. Sampling techniques in this study are purposive sampling. The research was conducted on a lecturer at the University of North Sumatra of 100 lecturers.
