The many and varied challenges facing higher education include a culture of publish or perish, increased course loads without more pay or benefits, increased pressure on institutions to compete for students, budget cuts, a political atmosphere targeting higher education, and continued systemic inequities. Those who work in higher ed are under more stress today than ever before. It has never been more important to understand and address the emotional self at work in higher education.
