Our Partnership with COACHE

The Collaborative on Academic Careers in Higher Education (COACHE) at the Harvard Graduate School of Education is a national, research-based initiative designed specifically to understand the job satisfaction of instructional and research faculty. Mason is partnering with COACHE to administer the Faculty Satisfaction and Faculty Retention and Exit surveys. 

The COACHE partnership will help Mason:

  • Collect comprehensive data that drills down into areas that impact satisfaction and productivity;

  • Benchmark results to and collaborate with peer institutions to design effective programs, policies and practices to facilitate organizational change and improve faculty outcomes;

  • Develop a more robust picture of faculty retention; and

  • Create Mason-specific action plans to intentionally strengthen faculty well-being and success.
