Title

An Examination of Nature Relatedness, Nature Exposure, and Quality of Work-Life Among Student Affairs Professionals

Abstract

This study explores the relationship with nature within the realm of career development. More specifically, it examined the relationship between nature relatedness, nature exposure, and quality of work-life among student affairs professionals. The participants identified as members of the American College and Personnel Association (n=275). A Pearson Product Moment Correlation Matrix (r) and a simple linear regression were used in this study. There were significant small correlations found between nature relatedness and quality of work-life variables such as home-work interface, job and career satisfaction, working conditions, and stress at work. Additionally, significant relationships were found between nature exposure and nature relatedness. Implications for student affairs professionals and career development are described and recommendations for future research are discussed.
