COACHE Faculty Survey
The Collaborative on Academic Careers in Higher Education (COACHE), based at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, is a research initiative and membership organization that gathers benchmarking data on best practices for recruitment and retention of faculty. The core component of COACHE is a survey with robust analysis designed to provide information about faculty experiences at their campus. COACHE’s institutional reports are powerful tools campus leadership uses to strengthen the university’s capacity to identify the drivers of faculty success and to implement informed changes.

2012 COACHE Survey Results
In fall 2012, RIT participated the COACHE survey and we will repeat the process in 2015-2016. The fall 2012 COACHE survey response rate among RIT’s tenured faculty was 59 percent, which exceeded that of the total COACHE cohort (50 percent). RIT’s non-tenure track response rate was 46 percent, matching the total cohort response rate in that category at the 11 other participating institutions. Survey results are available on this website on the right.
During the 2013-2014 academic year, university leadership focused on interpreting and sharing the data through meetings with Deans, Department Heads and Chairs, and at Town Hall and college faculty meetings.
