Faculty Satisfaction Survey

COACHE Faculty Job Satisfaction Survey

Beginning in early spring 2024, Berea College will be initiating a multi-year assessment and improvement process aimed specifically at better understanding and increasing faculty satisfaction across the academic workplace. The Faculty Job Satisfaction Survey that will be launching in early February is administered through the Collaborative on Academic Careers in Higher Education (COACHE) and will provide our academic leadership with actionable information that can be used to better support our faculty. Learn more about this process below and keep checking back for updates on our progress!

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. Under COACHE, more than 250 colleges, universities, and state systems have strengthened their capacity to identify the drivers of faculty success and implement informed changes. Through over a decade of work with senior faculty administrators, COACHE has a unique understanding of faculty needs and the intricacies of life in the collegiate environment. Based on scholarly literature, interviews with faculty, and focus groups with senior academic administrators, the COACHE Faculty Job Satisfaction Survey was crafted by and for academic affairs individuals.
