Castellanos, Jennifer
Adult Higher Education Alliance, Paper presented at the Annual Meeting of the Adult Higher Education Alliance (42nd, Orlando, FL, Mar 8-9, 2018)
Within college, students deal with a multitude of stressors. More than 19 million students are enrolled in college in the United States (US Census, 2015). College stress has been linked to negatively affecting a student's life in a variety of ways causing burnout syndrome, a prevalent issue concerning students within higher education. Burnout syndrome can cause students to encounter course stress, loneliness, negative learning emotion, and others. The purpose of this review is to examine the literature on academic burnout to understand the relationship between gender differences and academic burnout in higher education. Specifically, it explores an understanding of burnout among college students, lists the different effects, and explains several different coping strategies.
