As part of our commitment to meeting the professional needs of our faculty, the University of Rochester joined the Collaborative on Academic Careers in Higher Education (COACHE) for the second time in the 2012-13 academic year. Based at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, COACHE is a comprehensive survey of faculty life that was given to pre tenure and tenured faculty of the entire University, with the exception of the School of Medicine and Dentistry. The survey includes questions about: the nature of work (teaching, research, and service), faculty satisfaction with institutional governance and promotion processes; satisfaction with personal and family supports; levels of climate and collegiality; and other aspects of faculty life. The Office for Faculty Development and Diversity released a summary of the report’s findings.
