Work stress is recognized worldwide as a major challenge to employees? health and the healthiness of organizations. Employees who are stressed are also more likely to be unhealthy, poorly motivated, less productive and less safe at work. Organizational role stress originates in organizational demands experienced by the individual. Although, it does have galvanizing effects to some extent making the life more challenging and charming; beyond a certain level, it leads to disturbances in personal as well as professional life. Hence, to ensure excellence in imparting quality education, fostering result oriented research activities, and to be recognized as a premier academic setup, Universities will have to create congenial work culture and induce the teachers to ignite inner urge to contribute their level best, and develop a sense of belongingness. This ultimately paves the way for transforming the university into a world class university. In this regard, to ensure benchmark standards in the tripartite functions of education, research and extension at the State Agricultural Universities (SAUs) of India; taking care of the stress level of the teachers is the need of the hour. The present Empirical Paper, utilizing the published theoretical literature and Communication Approach of the Cross-sectional Descriptive research design, examines the relation between the Organization Role Stress (ORS) and demographics among the teachers of a State Agricultural University located in the coastal region of Gujarat State in India. Data collected from 100 respondents, using the ORS scale developed by Udai Pareek, highlight that ORS is well within the burnout limits; and Inter-Role Distance (IRD), Role Isolation (RI), Role Overload (RO) and Resource Inadequacy (RIn) are found to be the prominent role stressors. The demographic variables of experience and age are found to be closely associated with the ORS.
