Inspired by its commitment to improving the campus workplace for faculty, UTA’s Faculty Senate partnered with the Collaborative on Academic Careers in Higher Education (COACHE) to run the first systematic survey of UTA faculty members in more than a decade during the spring 2021 term. The survey results received in summer 2021 propel forward a multi-year effort of developing initiatives that improve the working life of faculty at UTA and the institution in general.
