This gives a quick comparison of an institution’s data to that of a selected subset (or all) of NACU institutions relative to 17 pre-selected data fields related to the financial health of institutions. The data fields span enrollment, admissions, finance, financial aid, and human resources, and the average values (averaged across the academic years selected) of the home institution are compared to the average across all comparison institutions selected (default is all NACU institutions). 

The tool (currently in beta format) is intended for comparing campus data, identifying trends, and planning purposes. The research was supported in part by the TIAA Institute and is connected to a larger project that collects and analyzes direct and indirect costs for the delivery of instruction.
