The Collaborative on Academic Careers in Higher Education (COACHE) at the Harvard Graduate School of Education is a research-practice partnership and network of peer institutions dedicated to improving outcomes in faculty recruitment, development, and retention. 

The COACHE survey closed on Friday, April 10. Thank you for your participation.

The Harvard COACHE survey is a national, research-based initiative designed to understand the job satisfaction of our FIU research and instructional faculty.

The COACHE survey results are used to create effective action plans to address faculty concerns. For example, the Faculty Mentor Program (FMP) was established in 2012 in response to the 2011 survey. Faculty mentoring now is reported as a strength of FIU compared to peer institutions.

Faculty Job Satisfaction Survey

FIU is partnering with COACHE to administer the Faculty Job Satisfaction survey, which provides actionable data about the conditions--the environment, policies and practices--that support faculty doing their best work.

The FIU COACHE steering committee will receive the institutional summary report with aggregate findings in summer 2020 to be shared with the campus community.

All FIU tenure-line and full-time term faculty will be asked to participate. The survey will take 20-25 minutes to complete. We recognize that your time is extremely valuable; please be assured that your investment in completing this survey will help FIU identify what you might need to do your best work.

Survey Administration and Data

COACHE collects data confidentially, only using identities to send reminders to non-respondents, which are not revealed to FIU. Data are analyzed by the COACHE team at Harvard. Only aggregate results are shared with FIU administrators and faculty, and only when there are a sufficient number (at least five) of responses to protect the anonymity of respondents.
