NACUBO Benchmarking Project

The National Association of College and University Business Officers (NACUBO) has developed a benchmarking project that addresses selected areas within a higher education entity. The University is participating in the 1997 NACUBO Benchmarking process. For the departments that are included, the survey is available from this web page by following the directions below. The results should be compiled and saved in electronic format and forwarded to Ed Hums in Special Projects when completed. The departments as defined by NACUBO that have a presence at Notre Dame are listed below. Additionally, Telecommunications, which is defined with Computing, and Student Housing, partially Business Operations and Student Affairs, may also be of some interest for our survey.
