A wealth of studies on work engagement is found in the literature. ‎However, relating stress to ‎work engagement among academicians of the ‎private higher education institutions is the area that ‎lacks a comprehensive ‎research framework. Therefore, this study was aimed at 1). providing a ‎review ‎of the extant literature on stress and work engagement; 2). employing the ‎ASSET model of ‎stress to work engagement; further 3). hypothesizing the ‎relationship among these variables, and ‎finally 4). developing a conceptual ‎framework. Based on the application of the ASSET model of ‎stress, this paper ‎proposes a model of the relationship between stress and work engagement ‎‎through health and commitment. Suggestions for practice and future ‎research are also presented. ‎
