Vanderbilt University recognizes that the core strength of an institution of higher education is its faculty. To learn more about faculty satisfaction, Vanderbilt has partnered with the Collaborative on Academic Careers in Higher Education (COACHE) to survey Vanderbilt faculty on their perceptions of the workplace and the support provided by the university. The results allow the university to evaluate our practices and implement improvements informed by these data. The COACHE survey was first administered in spring 2016 and again most recently in spring 2020. A summary report will be available soon. The University Faculty Development Committee is currently evaluating and will propose university-wide action items.
