This study examined the possible effect between the after-hours mobile technology use by student affairs professionals and work place burnout experienced by student affairs professionals. Similar to Owens (2014), data for this study were collected by employing the Maslach Burnout Inventory (Christina Maslach, Jackson, & Leiter, 1986). The collected data in this study were explored by the statistical method of multiple regression. While the number of responses was not high enough to determine statistically significant differences, the data did not show a strong correlation between after-hours mobile technology use and workplace burnout experienced by student affairs professionals.
