Ohio Wesleyan University is included in a list of colleges and universities with high levels of pre-tenure faculty job satisfaction.

The Collaborative on Academic Careers in Higher Education (COACHE), a 160-member organization based at Harvard's Graduate School of Education, included OWU on a list that also includes Kenyon College, Wellesley College and Wesleyan University in Connecticut.

The report drew from a survey of 15,000 junior faculty members at 127 of the organization's member colleges. OWU ranked as exceptional on two dimensions: clarity of expectations for tenure; and work and home balance and supports.

The list separates Ph.D./research institutions, master's degree institutions and baccalaureate institutions. OWU is on the list of baccalaureate schools. The complete list also includes Bowdoin College, Hendrix College, Medgar Evers College of the City University of New York, Mount Holyoke College, St. Olaf College and Trinity College.
