About Our Past Event

Faculty burnout is not a new concern among university leaders, but the impact of the past few years on faculty well-being, morale, and engagement has elevated faculty burnout as an urgent priority for many academic leaders.

Faculty are experiencing high levels of stress, inefficacy, anger, and grief. Many faculty are feeling increasingly disconnected from their work as educators, researchers, mentors, and leaders, and the ripple effects of faculty burnout are impacting areas across campus – including the student experience. 

During our conversations with academic leaders, we heard and felt the urgency to find a cure for faculty burnout. Leaders identified and discussed the need to provide better support to struggling faculty, and many have taken steps to address burnout.

However, questions regarding where to start and how to play an effective role in combating faculty burnout remained:

  • How do we ensure faculty know their well-being is a top priority among university leaders?
  • What can we do to help prevent faculty from becoming burnt out?
  • What is my role as an academic leader in tackling faculty burnout? 


This past summer, EAB launched a research study to seek and understand answers to these questions. After conducting 30+ research interviews with experts in the field, we are excited to share our early findings to these questions and bring academic leaders together to engage with peers during a two-part event series.

This cohort is best suited for Provosts, Vice Provosts, and Associate Provosts. Registration for each session is limited to two attendees per institution.

This expert-led session will engage academic leaders in understanding the faculty burnout challenge, their unique role in aiding faculty burnout, and the importance of well-being in tackling faculty burnout.
