Do you feel that there are too few hours in the day?

Feeling rushed contributes to stress, and stress affects our teaching, research and collegiality. The first-ever national survey of occupational stress, carried out in 2007 by the Canadian Association of University Teachers, finds that “overall stress levels of academic staff are very high.”

Join Prof. Barbara K. Seeber, Brock University and Prof. Maggie Berg, Queens University for a presentation and interactive workshop addressing specific stress-related concerns relevant across academic positions.

“Slowness” is not to work less or retreat into academic nostalgia, but to act purposefully in defense of our profession’s intellectual and humane values.
