As part of NACU Research, the Benchmark Comparison Report allows you to compare NACU institutions along 80+ variables in admissions, enrollment, finances, financial aid, and human resources for up to a ten-year period. For financial measures, a toggle button allows you to calculate a ratio of the selected value by student headcount or student full-time equivalence (FTE).

The tool 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.
