Today we are pleased to announce COACHE’s latest annual report. Like many institutions and organizations, COACHE had to quickly adapt our work in 2020 to advance existing priorities while also responding to the unique challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic. We called attention to how COVID-19 has impacted the faculty community we serve, and re-oriented our work toward equity in a new way. We also shifted some of the ways we do our work—which is why you’re reading this annual report online, instead of in print!
In 2020 we:
- explored the ways institutions have (and haven’t) addressed faculty’s childcare needs during the pandemic, and discussed the emerging inequities family responsibilities are creating for faculty;
- mined our Faculty Retention and Exit Survey to offer recommendations for how administrators can better handle necessary layoffs;
- analyzed the differences in the ways white faculty and Black faculty perceive diversity and inclusion efforts on campus;
- published new data on the experiences of faculty with disabilities...
... And so much more.
We also launched Deans’ Comparative Reports, a set of data tables for our Faculty Job Satisfaction Survey partners that allows school or college leaders to compare their own faculty to others within their institution or at peer institutions. With this addition we are proud to be expanding the potential impact of our data, at organizational levels not previously served.
We invite you to read the annual report to look back on all of the insights and analysis that have come out of this unique year, and learn about where we look forward to taking COACHE in 2021.
