Summary

Residential instructional faculty in various disciplines report similar types of stressors in national and international studies. To determine whether this pattern holds for librarians, department chairs, cooperative extension faculty and others, a survey was conducted of the sources of stress across all faculty classifications in one university. A total of 1807 surveys was mailed, and after a second mailing, a response rate of 70% was achieved. Although each faculty group was found to have a distinct pattern of sources of stress, certain stressors were found to be common to all faculty. Most concerned either time or resource constraints: insufficient time to keep abreast of current events or to do what was expected in the job, or insufficient salaries and difficulties in securing financial support. Suggestions are made for training in time management techniques and a focus on a problem-solving approach to cope with financial stresses. Contains 11 references. (KM)
