This study explored the state of psychological well-being and academic optimism in relation to university tasks among one hundred sixty-nine (169) professors in selected UAE universities, utilizing mixed quantitative and qualitative research approaches. The quantitative aspect primarily employed descriptive correlation method which used quantifiable data through survey instruments on psychological well-being, academic optimism, and university tasks. The qualitative analysis was used, through a focused group discussion among nineteen (19) key informants. Six (6) areas of psychological well- being: Autonomy, environmental mastery, personal growth, positive relations, purpose in life, and self- Acceptance were measured through the Ryff s Scales of Psychological Well-Being. Academic optimism scale measured three (3) subscales: Efficacy, trust, and academic emphasis. University tasks were categorized into three (3) major areas: student centered work, professional development work, and community centered work. The moderator variables considered were age, gender, length of teaching experience, length of experience in the UAE, and area of specialization. The results showed that the participants tend towards high scores in the subscales of autonomy, self-acceptance, and purpose in life. The academic optimism scale showed prominent high scores in efficacy and trust. Among the university tasks, student-centered work was the most fulfilled. Using the focused-group discussion, most expat university professors lament on the lack of time, management support, and lack of funding to pursue professional development, particularly research and publication. The regression analysis showed that there is a significant correlation between psychological well-being and academic optimism. Both psychological well-being and academic optimism predicts fulfillment of university tasks.
