Dear Colleagues:

Last month you received an email from the Provost introducing the COACHE (Collaborative on Academic Careers in Higher Education) partnership and the faculty satisfaction survey.  If you are a full-time faculty, you also received an email from Collaborative on Academic Careers directing you towards the survey.  I would like to encourage each of you to complete this 25-minute survey for the following reasons:

As Dean, I am committed to supporting you as faculty and enhancing overall faculty engagement throughout the School. I intend to utilize the COACHE survey results to assist in guiding our School's programs and strategies. I also commit to work with the department chairs to support opportunities identified through the survey results at the department level to enhance the faculty work experience within VSE.

I greatly appreciate your input, and urge you to complete the 25-minute survey and share your experience and thoughts as a faculty member within the Volgenau School of Engineering.
