Call for faculty participation in the COACHE Job Satisfaction Survey

In the coming days, UNCG faculty will have an opportunity to participate in a survey of faculty job satisfaction. This research is part of a national program called the Collaborative on Academic Careers in Higher Education (COACHE), which has been operating from the Harvard Graduate School of Education since 2003.

This survey is designed to determine current job satisfaction levels compared to faculty at peer institutions. The views of faculty members are especially important to UNCG as it strives to attract and retain the best and brightest scholars and teachers, increase the satisfaction of all faculty, and to make UNCG a great place to work.

During this week, faculty members who have been employed at UNCG longer than one year will receive an e-mail from COACHE (coachefaculty@opinioncast.com), directing them to the online survey. Participation will entail completing a 25-minute, web-based survey.

The COACHE survey provides an opportunity to learn from an independent, research-driven, comparative study. UNCG has the potential to be one of the best places for scholars to work, and with the assistance of faculty we can learn how best to support that goal.

Faculty members with any questions about this survey may contact Wade Gum in the Office of Institutional Research at wegum@uncg.edu or 336-334-3736, or COACHE at coachefaculty@srbi.com.
