Academic staff in Ukraine face a convergence of institutional and professional pressures precipitated by a national economic crisis, projected declines in enrollment, and dramatic changes to institutional procedures as institutions implement the Bologna process. The goal of this study was to examine the extent to which these pressures are reshaping the way academic staff in Ukraine engage in their day-to-day work, their careers, and their role in their university. Findings indicate that faculty in Ukraine are caught in a confluence of conflicting demands that elicits adaptive coping strategies and threatens to undermine the national efforts to modernize Ukraine’s higher education.
