Through over a decade of collaboration with senior faculty administrators, COACHE has a unique understanding of faculty needs and the intricacies of life in higher education. Based on scholarly literature, interviews with faculty, and focus groups with senior academic administrators, our Faculty Job Satisfaction Survey was crafted by and for academic affairs leaders.
Benchmark your faculty's experience of the academic workplace within both internal and national contexts.
We are dedicated to helping our partners make meaning from their results, and enact data-driven policy changes on their campus. For this reason, participation in the Faculty Job Satisfaction Survey entails a three-year partnership with COACHE. Over the course of those three years, your institution will receive a survey and diagnostic report, along with regular consultations to senior academic leaders on how to make meaning and take action from the data. Enrollment in COACHE is open to all two- and four-year colleges, universities, and state systems.
The typical administration period for the Faculty Job Satisfaction Survey runs from early February through early April. The survey is administered only once in a given year. Enrollment for a given year's survey cohort is open from January - November of the year preceeding survey administration (e.g. Jan '21 - Nov. '21 for a Feb. '22 administration).
