Abstract: The purpose of this study is to gain a deeper understanding of the relationships between workload, faculty/staff support and mental wellbeing of students during a pandemic. Specifically, we are interested in better understanding the moderating effects of faculty/staff support on the negative relationship between workload and mental wellbeing of students. The findings of the study show significance in the conditional effects. At the highest levels of support, faculty/staff support moderates the relationship between workload and mental wellbeing of students. Faculty/Staff should be prepared to provide high levels of support for students during normal times, but also during times of crisis. Universities should look to provide training to help prepare them.
