Academic burnout and stress are experienced widely at both small and large private and public post-secondary institutions. This is perhaps due to the interpersonal relationships and expectations essential to academe. Faculty members at West Coast Christian College are not immune to potential sources of academic stress. The purpose of this study was to develop a stress management program for faculty at West Coast Christian College on the prevention and recovery of burnout. A review of the literature led to the employment of the Maslach Burnout Inventory (MBI) Educators Survey to assess faculty burnout; the results were then used to guide the selection of appropriate interventions to reduce the level of faculty stress. The program was reviewed by a panel of experts consisting of faculty and administrators. The stress management strategies were presented to the faculty for their consideration in using the MBI Educators Survey for assessing faculty burnout and implementing stress management techniques. The panel and faculty members deemed the program appropriate for identifying and controlling faculty burnout.
