The COACHE Survey

COACHE (Collaborative on Academic Careers in Higher Education) is a collaboration of colleges and universities committed to gathering the peer diagnostic and comparative data academic administrators need to recruit, retain, and support faculty members who are critical to the long-term future of their institutions.

The COACHE Faculty Satisfaction Survey covers every aspect of a faculty member’s academic life, including facilities and work resources, opportunities for interdisciplinary work, mentoring and recognition, and a range of university policies related to benefits, promotion, and governance. COACHE survey results influence action plans to improve the faculty experience at Emory.

Emory and COACHE are committed to the integrity of the survey and safeguarding the privacy of our faculty. Responses are completely confidential and will be handled through the COACHE project team. Participants’ privacy will be maintained in all published and written data, and anonymity will be ensured in the broad summary analysis that COACHE will share with our campus.

Our Commitment to Faculty Satisfaction

An Inclusively Eminent Faculty

Emory believes one of its most valuable assets is its faculty. The One Emory strategic framework calls for fostering an academic environment that attracts, promotes, and retains scholars, researchers, and teachers of the highest caliber and achieves Emory’s full potential as an ethically engaged, diverse community.

An inclusively eminent faculty is one in which all faculty sense they belong and find opportunities for professional growth and achievement. Articulating the details of this vision also was championed by faculty and administrative partners in the Class and Labor Report, now advanced as Toward Faculty Eminence: Inclusivity, Equity, and Professional Development.
