This study reports the results of 248 survey questionnaires and 26 interviews with full-time and part-time female faculty members at a Lebanese Higher Education Institution. The researchers focused on working women at a Lebanese higher educational Institution to assess the origins and the impact of their work-life conflict in their careers and family. This research’s aim was to determine the effect of the independent variables marital status, having children, having dependents, years of experience and status in an organization on work-conflict and home-conflict (the dependent variables). The work conflict is affected positively by the marital status, the years of experience and the position in the organization. The participants described the University as a good institution to work for and saw themselves as privileged
since the University does not discriminate against women and allows them to achieve higher and leadership position
