Collaborative on Academic Careers in Higher Education (COACHE) Survey


The Collaborative on Academic Careers in Higher Education (COACHE) is an ongoing study of faculty job satisfaction coordinated and administered by Harvard University. COACHE strives to place actionable information in the hands of participating colleges and universities to improve work life for faculty. COACHE administers an annual survey and provides each participating institution with a formal Provost’s Report containing both internal and external comparative analyses highlighting each institution’s strengths and opportunities for improvement. The University of Missouri Office of Institutional Research and Quality Improvement has used this data to create reports specific to each school and college.

MU’s most recent COACHE survey was administered in Spring 2019. In June, 2019, Provost Ramchand convened the COACHE Survey Faculty Job Satisfaction Committee to analyze data from the survey and issue a report. Co-chaired by Drs. Leigh Neier and Joe Parcell, their full report is linked below in the “2019 COACHE Results” section. Information from the 2016 survey is included in the “2016 COACHE Results” section.
