COACHE survey closes April 8

This week, through April 8, is JHU faculty members' last chance to complete the COACHE satisfaction survey. The university administration wants to know what is important to faculty, what they are currently satisfied with regarding their work at Hopkins, and what can be improved.

The survey is part of a national program called the Collaborative on Academic Careers in Higher Education (COACHE), which has been operating from the Harvard Graduate School of Education since 2003. It takes 20 to 30 minutes to complete because it is comprehensive in its approach to the many issues that can affect faculty success and satisfaction, and it provides a comparison to faculty at peer institutions. Departmental and university leaders will meet in September to begin the process of understanding this year's results and start developing action plans.

Each full-time faculty member should have received an email from COACHE (, containing a unique link for the web-based survey. Please check your spam/junk and trash folders as well as your regular inbox. If you cannot easily find that email, you can request another link by emailing
