ISU partners with COACHE to assess and improve work environment | News


Illinois State University’s Office of the Provost will be reviewing faculty job satisfaction beginning in the spring semester.

Order Transcription Services

This begins with a survey that will be distributed in February. Over 1,500 full-time faculty will be asked for their feedback, including nontenure track positions.

The data collection is in a partnership with Collaborative on Academic Careers in Higher Education (COACHE) which is based in the Harvard Graduate School of Education. Dr. Yojanna Cuenca-Carlino, assistant vice president for faculty development, diversity and learning, will be leading the ISU COACHE team. 

The idea stemmed from faculty contentment that was discussed at a retreat organized by Provost Andover Tarhule last fall. Cuenca-Carlino led the faculty success group to gather data to determine how faculty satisfaction can be increased.

The goal of the survey is to be able to gather information and look at the results pertaining to various areas. These areas can examine study, gender, race and rank to gain an expansive look at the faculty sentiment, and determine which areas need the most work.

COACHE has partnered with over 300 universities. ISU will have results shown in comparison to responses from faculty at peer institutions.
