Factors Affecting Stress among Faculty Members of Public Universities in the Philippines: A Multiple Regression Analysis

Abstract

This study focuses on particular demographic and education-related factors that contribute to the stress levels of public university faculty members in the Philippines. Participants in this study were part-time or full-time faculty members in a public university in the Philippines and were teaching at least a class for the First Semester of Academic Year 2016-2017. Participants were tasked to answer a survey, online or paper format, that consists of 3 instruments and other questions. Responses from 100 participants were then analyzed with multiple regression as the main statistical analysis. Results showed age, part-time/full-time status, job satisfaction and negative religious coping as significant predictors to faculty stress. Other performed analyses also revealed significant negative correlations between job satisfaction and stressors related to reward and recognition, and departmental influence. In addition, though faculty members prefer positive religious coping as a coping strategy over negative religious coping, a significant positive correlation was noted between the 2 types. Recommendations were made for future studies related to stress among public university faculty members in the Philippines.
