COACHE Team

The process of implementing the COACHE survey at CMU requires the creation of a CMU coordinating team consisting of faculty, staff, and administrators from across campus to work collaboratively to implement the survey, analyze results, construct a report, and make recommendations. The HGSE administration makes specific recommendations of the common kinds of positions that contribute to the overall success of the process when represented on the team. For example, HGSE recommends including representations from groups such as the Academic Senate, Curriculum and Instruction, ADVANCE grant members, deans, communication officers, diversity and inclusion specialists, and faculty.  CMU’s COACHE Team reflects these recommendations and is comprised of the following persons:

Frimpomaa Ampaw
