University Benchmark Project

UW-Stout partners with the NHEBI to help other 4-year universities improve university support services.
About the University Benchmark Project

The University of Wisconsin-Stout and the National Higher Education Benchmarking Institute (NHEBI) have partnered to provide four-year institutions with unit-level data on administrative service units and student service units from peer and aspirational institutions, enabling participants to identify strengths and opportunities for improvement. 

The project is open to all 4-year institutions of higher education.
