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 COACHE, 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. 


Faculty Job Satisfaction Survey Details

  • Job Satisfaction Survey opened in February 2018
  • Anonymous responses were sent directly to COACHE
  • Nearly half of all eligible UC faculty participated—surpassing the national response rate
  • Survey results highlight areas of strength and future development based on survey responses and peer comparison scores
  • Six working groups, formed through a peer and self-nomination process, are assessing the survey data to review strengths and areas of development. The working groups will submit an Executive Report and key recommendations for consideration in April 2019

    To participate in a working group, fill out the COACHE Working Group Nomination Form. Faculty and staff may submit a personal nomination or a nomination on behalf of a colleague. Nominations are due Nov. 2, 2018.
