Faculty, staff invited to join working groups to enhance UC work environment

Groups will review COACHE Faculty Job Satisfaction Survey data and develop an executive report outlining strategic recommendations

faculty job satisfaction survey data

The University of Cincinnati’s COACHE team is organizing six working groups charged with analyzing results of the COACHE Faculty Job Satisfaction Survey.

The survey, implemented by COACHE, was developed to enhance our understanding of faculty members’ experiences and satisfaction with various aspects of their work as well as aid faculty development and retention efforts.

Surpassing the national response rate, nearly half of all eligible faculty recently participated in the survey, and submitted anonymous responses directly to COACHE.  According to survey results, and our peer comparison scores, areas of strength reported by faculty are

  • Departmental Collegiality
  • Tenure Policies
  •  Leadership: Faculty

Areas noted by faculty that need further development are

  •  Interdisciplinary Work
  • Mentoring
  •  Leadership: Departmental

One working group will be formed for each of the above categories. Members of the six working groups will analyze survey results and work with leadership to develop an executive report outlining strategic recommendations.

To participate in a working group, please fill out the COACHE Working Group nomination form. Both faculty and staff are encouraged to participate. You can nominate yourself or a colleague.  

Faculty and staff must submit COACHE working group nomination forms by November 2.
