James Madison University participated in a survey and analysis of tenured track non-tenured faculty conducted by the Collaborative on Academic Careers in Higher Education (COACHE) of the Harvard Graduate School of Education. JMU also participated in 2008.

This survey is intended to assess faculty satisfaction with various policies, procedures and aspects of their work in terms of support for their professional performance.The survey is designed so that analyses of responses can lead directly to actions that can improve the professional lives and performance of junior faculty.

The survey allows for comparisons to over 200 other institutions completing the survey as well as to the previous JMU results.
