Stressing Out: Connecting Race, Gender, and Stress with Faculty Productivity
Eagan, M. Kevin, Jr.; Garvey, Jason C.
Journal of Higher Education, v86 n6 p923-951 Nov-Dec 2015
This study uses multilevel modeling to analyze data from a national sample of full-time, undergraduate faculty at four-year institutions to examine the connections among race, gender, sources of stress, and productivity in the areas of research, teaching, and service. We find that stress due to discrimination has particular negative salience for faculty of color. By contrast, stress due to family obligations significantly and positively correlated with faculty's adoption of student-centered teaching practices and participation in civic-minded activities.
