Since 2007, Virginia Tech has partnered with the Collaborative on Academic Careers in Higher Education (COACHE), based at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, to survey faculty on their perceptions of the university, the workplace, the community, and their jobs. The survey results allow university stakeholders to identify strengths as well as implement improvements that make Virginia Tech a more satisfying place for faculty to work.
