Boundary Integration and Work/Life Balance When You Live Where You Work: A Study of Residence Life Professionals
Rankin, Pressley R., IV; Gulley, Needham Yancey
Journal of College and University Student Housing, v44 n2 p64-81 2018
The separation of work and life creates unique challenges for residence life professionals, given that they often live in their place of work. The culture of this work pushes such employees to integrate their work and personal lives in ways that are not always healthy or fulfilling and that frequently lead to burnout. This study sought to explore these unique realities. The outcome presented here is a new continuum model to better understand the work/life balance strains of residential staff.
