Office of the Provost


The University of Pittsburgh is one of the country’s best public research universities; our strength is based in the exceptional quality of faculty throughout the University and is demonstrated in the outstanding levels of student achievement, research success, and multidisciplinary teamwork.

Each academic unit of the University is committed to fostering a climate in which faculty can be successful in teaching, research, and service. Centralized support for faculty is available through initiatives based in the Provost’s Office and elsewhere.


University of Pittsburgh Faculty Members Asked to Participate in National Job Satisfaction Survey (COACHE)

The Office of the Provost asks for your participation in a short survey of full-time faculty to better understand your experience as a faculty member at the University of Pittsburgh. The Collaborative on Academic Careers in Higher Education (COACHE) survey was sent to full-time tenured, tenure-stream, and non-tenure stream faculty (excluding clinical faculty and recently hired faculty) via email last week. If you have not received an invitation, please email to request a link to the survey.
