Watermark is pleased to support the 2020 Inside Higher Ed Survey of College and University Chief Academic Officers, conducted by Gallup and answered by 597 provosts or chief academic officers, and released in conjunction with the Association of American Colleges and Universities Annual Meeting in Washington D.C. This year’s survey includes compelling sentiments on recruiting and retaining faculty, criteria around program review, the effectiveness of providing quality undergraduate education, as well as policies to thwart sexual harassment.
