SUNY's COACHE Faculty Development Resource Site

What is COACHE

“The Collaborative on Academic Careers in Higher Education (COACHE) is a research initiative and membership organization driven by senior academic officers who believe that the search for best practices begins with sound data – data that make the recruitment and management of faculty talent, and their own leadership, more effective. Founded in 2002 with support from the Ford Foundation and Atlantic Philanthropies, COACHE is based at the Harvard Graduate School of Education and is now supported completely by its members.”


SUNY partnered with COACHE to provide all SUNY campuses with the opportunity to learn more about the current academic environment on their campuses.  In 2013, SUNY engaged in the first system-level partnership with COACHE provoding COACHE to all four-year institutions.  In 2017, the COACHE partnership was expanded to included community colleges, following the launch of a new community college version of COACHE.
