Abstract

This study examined the role of resilience and gender in coping with academic challenges among university undergraduates. Three hundred and eighty (380) including 185(48.6%) males and 195 (51.4%) female students from the University of Nigeria, Nsukka participated in the study. These participants were drawn using probability sampling method. Their age ranged from 18 to 35 years with a mean age of 26.6 years. A total of 221(58.1%) were single and 159 (41.8%) were married. Two scales were used to measure the variables of study. The scales were: Brief Resilience Scale (BRS) and Stress Coping Inventory (SCI). A cross-sectional design was adopted for the study and linear regression was used to analyze the data. The result showed that both resilience and gender did not significantly predict coping with academic challenges among university undergraduates. It was concluded that gender and resilience were not factors in coping with academic challenges among university undergraduates.
