Burnout Resistance Resources

Bearkats Overcoming Burnout



Burnout at work happens, and it happens on our campus. But, how do we avoid it and overcome it?

Dr. Aneika Simmons, in association with her Faculty Administrative Fellowship with the Office of the Provost, has conducted research about burnout at Sam Houston State University. That research has culminated into Building a Burnout Resistant Campus Day on Friday, November 12, 2021.

Dr. Simmons joined with nationally acclaimed speakers Valerie Burton and Anne Grady to share about how to mitigate the effects of stress and avoid burnout. This conference provided an opportunity for faculty and staff to learn about burnout and get the tools needed to overcome and build resiliency in the face of adversity.

We want to empower you with additional tools that will continue to assist you. Scroll down to learn more about helpful internal and external resources.

Together, let’s work to make SHSU a burnout-resistant campus.

Faculty Administrative Fellowship Program

The Faculty Administrative Fellowship Program, within the Office of the Provost, provides an opportunity for tenured faculty members who are interested in enhancing their university leadership skills to increase awareness of the operational capacities of Academic Affairs and to assist the Office of the Provost with current or emerging issues that impact the University. The Building a Burnout Resistant Campus Day is a result of Dr. Aneika Simmons’s research and efforts surrounding her 2021 fellowship.
