In Spring 2023, BMCC is again participating in the COACHE survey of faculty job satisfaction. The survey launched the week of February 12 and will be open through April 7. The survey is the first step in a three-year process designed to improve the workplace for faculty. Once we have the results in hand, the COACHE Steering Committee will share the findings broadly and will develop recommendations for actionable policies and practices based on survey data.
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.
