Collaboration on Academic Careers in Higher Education (COACHE) Survey

The Collaborative on Academic Careers in Higher Education (COACHE) is an ongoing study of faculty job satisfaction administered by the Harvard Graduate School of Education. The survey measures a range of factors that are important to faculty and strives to place actionable information in participating universities' hands to improve faculty work life. As a result, FGCU has partnered with COACHE, joining academic leaders at more than 300 colleges, universities, community colleges, and state systems to identify the drivers of faculty success and implement informed changes. The experts at COACHE administer an annual survey and will provide FGCU with a research-based diagnostic report of survey results containing internal and external comparative analyses highlighting each institution's strengths and opportunities for improvement.
