Administrators, in general, are at greater risk of anxiety than are other people in other jobs, due to their duties and responsibilities. In this study, both state and trait anxiety levels of college administrators were assessed and the administrators were compared based on their anxiety levels. For the purpose of assessing state and trait anxiety levels, the State-Trait Anxiety Inventory (STAI; Spielberger, Gorsuch, & Lushene, 1970) adapted to Turkish by LeCompte and Oner (1975) was used. The study sample included 72 college administrators who were working in Turkish state and private universities in different regions of the country. Results showed significant correlation between the state and trait anxiety levels. No significant difference was found based on gender, age, administrative level, or tenure. However, the direction of the differences was similar to those gained in the previous studies. Results are discussed and suggestions are given.
