Life Outside Work

Work-Family Conflict

These graphs are based on responses to questions that assessed the levels to which faculty's work life interfered with their home life, such as "The demands of my work interfere with my home and family life" and "My job produces strain that makes it difficult to fulfill family duties."

Work-family conflict was reported to be fairly high for faculty across all four campuses, and appears to be stable across both survey time periods of 2004 and 2006.
