Mary:

SRA International offers a Sponsored Programs Benchmarking program in
partnership with BearingPoint (formerly KPMG Consulting). It is a web based
survey and data base that allows you to benchmark against comparable
institutions using either predefined demographic groups or by  selecting a
custom peer group from among the study participants. The survey has 18
predefined performance metrics in the areas of institutional
competitiveness, workload, staffing, costs, etc. The 2002 Survey also
collects data on institutional practices including organizatonal structures,
faculty incentives, policies and procedures, professional development, and
training.
A commnication from SRA to its membership will be forthcoming shortly
providing the details of the 2002 Survey and how to participate. You can
also contact me off line for more information if you are interested. Summary
data from the FY98 and FY00 survey are also available.

Subject: [RESADM-L] a question

We are deep into planning throughout our university - new President, etc.,
etc.

I have had a question put to me that I have no answer for - "How do you
measure success relative to other institutions?"

I have never used other institutions as benchmarks because I have always
seen each as unique.

Do any of you use some sort of yardstick to measure success that takes into
account similar institutions?

We are rural, nearly 10,000 students, regional university, strong education
and arts colleges.  Also have nursing, business and arts and sciences
colleges.

Thanks for any input.
