What will my institution do with the data?

Institutions will use the information from the COACHE Survey in different ways. Most will share the results in summary form with board members, academic administrators, and other groups that need to understand what it's like being a faculty member at your college or university. Some institutions will analyze information from the survey report and use it in their long range institutional planning. Your institution may also share the results with others to help recruit new faculty members. Perhaps the most important use is for your institution to learn about you and your colleagues, and where it should focus attention and resources to make improvements in job satisfaction.
