The purpose of this inquiry is to study how student affairs professionals manage role conflict in relation to work/life balance based on the challenging culture of the field. The underlying goals are to identify the barriers or challenges of managing multiple roles as a student affairs administrator and identify strategies to assist employees in managing and integrating multiple roles. To conduct this qualitative study, I interviewed 15 student affairs professionals regarding their ability to manage role conflict in relation to work/life balance. Findings include recommendations for university leadership in assisting professional staff in managing multiple roles, which include supporting self-care, value adoption, and changing the institutional culture around work/life balance practices.
