Now more than ever the importance of self-care is paramount. With the ever-increasing demands on faculty time, how do we thoughtfully engage in self-care practices on a regular basis? Faculty members in higher education face numerous demands and evolving responsibilities including engaging in scholarship, working with students both in and out of the classroom, and participating in service on campus and in the community. How this pressure manifests varies across institution and discipline, however the fact remains that a high level of occupational stress accompanies the role of university faculty members (Meng & Wang, 2018). As college students’ stress levels continue to rise, faculty are tasked with educating overly scheduled and fatigued students. How do we hold space for others to grow and learn if we do not hold the same space for ourselves? This roundtable discussion will engage participants in practice and discussion around self-care in academia.
