The Collaborative on Academic Careers in Higher Education (COACHE)

Faculty Evaluation and Development

Task Force Open Forum

October 27, 2006


“Supported by a grant from the Ford Foundation, COACHE is a collaboration of colleges and universities committed to gathering the peer diagnostic and comparative data academic administrators need to recruit, retain, and develop the cohort most critical to the long-term future of their institutions.”

Co-Principal InvestigatorsRichard P. Chait and Cathy A. Trower

Harvard University Graduate School of Education

“The COACHE Survey was designed through the Study of New Scholars, a process that included extensive research, discussions with six focus groups, and experiences of pilot sites including 12 prestigious colleges and universities. The result is a survey ‘by junior faculty, for junior faculty,’ in which every question is designed to produce an actionable policy response.”

“The core element of COACHE is an electronic survey, which takes 30 to 40 minutes to complete online, asks faculty to assess their experiences regarding promotion and tenure, the nature of their work, policies and practices, and the general climate, culture and level of collegiality on their campuses.”
