International Education Studies, v2 n1 p143-150 Feb 2009
This study was conducted in Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM) Penang, Malaysia in April 2005. The objectives of the study were to examine the life satisfaction of the academic and non-academic staff. Findings revealed that some demographic variables had significant difference in life satisfaction. This study could provide meaningful information to the top management to design intervention programs to improve life satisfaction among the UiTM staff. However, since the above findings were from a case study of life satisfaction of UiTM Penang staff hence one needs to exercise caution in generalizing to the other institutions of higher education settings.
