Abstract

The faculty plays a vital role in the higher education industry, in business and social environment in India, which is changing very drastically in achieving the organizational visions.

The aim of the study was focused on to empirically analyze the level and the impact of stress among academies of the private Universities and colleges in Uttarakhand and also to study the factors responsible for stress on them in academics.

For this purpose only the private Universities and colleges were selected for the study. The observation shows that the faculties are in a stress. Occupational stress index was used to measure the level of the stress and its impact. The study shows that factors like role overload, role ambiguity, role conflict are reasons for stress in females. But the factors like political pressure are responsible for creating the stress in both. The study shows that there are different factors causing stress on at different age groups, some cause stress approximately at similar level on both. It can be restricted by reducing the role conflict, role ambiguity and putting a check on the factors like organizational politics.

Keywords: Occupational Stress, Role Ambiguity, Role Conflict, Intrinsic Impoverishment, Strenuous Working Conditions
