Open Access Graduate Research Paper
Selye (1976) defines stress as "the nonspecific response of the body to any demand". The phrase "administrative stress" is often used to describe the hazard of being an administrator in an educational environment. There has been a very significant increase in the pressures that people in all levels of administration have to face and it is leading to administrative stress. A review of the literature indicates that the phrases "administrative stress" and "administrative burnout" are used interchangeable to describe this condition. What causes stress, what are the physical and mental symptoms of stress; and what can be done about administrative stress will be dealt with in this paper.
