Executive Summary

One of the great strengths of an institution of higher education is its faculty. A consensus has emerged that college faculty are affected by their perception of the values and rewards in their workplace, and that supportive environments promote faculty satisfaction, which can lead to increased productivity and retention. With this understanding, the Collaborative on Academic Careers in Higher Education (COACHE) at the Harvard Graduate School of Education developed the Tenure-Track Faculty Job Satisfaction Survey. This core instrument of COACHE was developed, tested, validated, and is continually improved with assistance from participating institutions. The paper assesses early-career faculty experiences in several areas deemed critical to their success.
