The Effects of the Practice of the Newstart Health Regimen on Faculty Stress among Faculty at Seventh-Day Adventist Colleges and Universities
Ashley, George; Cort, Malcolm
Christian Higher Education, v6 n2 p131-142 Mar 2007
Utilizing an availability sample of (n = 124) faculty from three postsecondary Seventh-day Adventists institutions that promote a healthy lifestyle philosophy encapsulated in the acronym NEWSTART, this study explored effects of this health/religious regimen on faculty stress among this group. The findings reported in this paper indicate that three of the five components of the Faculty Stress Index were significantly influenced by the practice of the NEWSTART principles. These components are time constraints, reward and recognition, and departmental influence. These results constitute baseline information on health practices used by faculty at SDA institutions and the effectiveness of this model as a means of faculty stress reduction among this group and potentially for faculty at a wider range of educational institutions.
