COACHE Job Satisfaction Participation Rates

University of Denver

Letter  •


Great news! The University of Denver is currently tracking well above our peers on our COACHE survey response rates—our response rate is 57.9 percent, compared with a peer response rate of 51.2 percent; our completion rate is 47.3 percent, compared with a peer completion rate of 36.3 percent; and our retention rate is 81.7 percent, compared with a peer completion rate of 73.7 percent.

But what does this really mean? We are excited about these rates because the responses we receive from appointed faculty members like yourself will provide actionable data. We will use this data to inform discussions, generate ideas and make meaningful, data-driven decisions.

While our current rates are admirable, we hope to garner as much input as possible from each faculty member invited to participate. This survey should only take about 25 minutes to complete. If you have not yet accessed or completed your confidential survey, please revisit the link that was sent to you in February directly from COACHE. If you did not receive a link at that time or no longer have the email, you may always request a resend of your unique link by contacting the COACHE Faculty team at They typically respond within one business day and will be able to provide you with your survey link.

Please note, if you are a part-time appointed faculty member who has not been able to complete your survey, you should also email to request that your link be reset. Then, when you restart the survey, you should choose full time for the question that asks about your appointment status. This will allow you to move past this screening question, and we encourage you to follow this approach in order to complete your survey.

If you have any issues regarding your survey which you’d like to share with our internal executive committee for this process, please contact

For those who have already completed a COACHE Job Satisfaction Survey (quite a few of you!), thank you very much for your input.
