We Want to Hear From You!

UC is proud to partner with COACHE to learn how we can improve the quality of work-life at our university.

The 2018 Faculty Job Satisfaction Survey is your opportunity to tell us what you think about working at UC. All full-time tenure, tenure-track and non-tenure faculty are encouraged to participate. Responses will remain anonymous.

Thank you in advance for your participation and for your efforts to make UC an excellent place to work.


Faculty are essential to the success of our university and academic mission. To better understand the needs of our faculty, the University of Cincinnati (UC) has partnered with Collaborative on Academic Careers in Higher Education (COACHE). For more than 10 years, COACHE has worked with more than 250 academic institutions to survey faculty and identify themes associated with faculty satisfaction.

This webpage is designed to keep faculty abreast of UC’s initiates through COACHE. Here you’ll find information about COAHCE, the UC COACHE Team, survey results and more.

UC is now sharing results of the 2018 Faculty Job Satisfaction Survey and plans to complete the final phase of the Faculty Retention and Exit Survey in 2018.
