COACHE Faculty Job Satisfaction Survey

COACHE, based at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, is a consortium of institutional leaders working to improve outcomes in faculty recruitment, development, and retention. COACHE developed and administers the COACHE Faculty Job Satisfaction Survey and has published a series of Benchmark Best Practices and Special Reports that feature promising practices from member institutions, including the ways in which COACHE data informed their decisions and strategies.

The next COACHE Survey at Georgetown will launch in February 2022.

Since 2013, Georgetown University has partnered with COACHE to administer the survey to all full-time tenured, tenure-track, and non-tenure track faculty members. Review the latest results, learn about actions Georgetown has taken based on the results, read more about the upcoming survey below.

We welcome your input throughout the planning and data analysis process by emailing
