Benchmarking Program

Benchmarking Project

The ACUBO Benchmarking Project is a customized peer benchmarking service available on demand to SACUBO, CACUBO, WACUBO, and EACUBO members.

The project began in 2012 when SACUBO’s Benchmarking Committee, representing a cross section of SACUBO institutions, surveyed the constituency to determine what benchmarks were needed for strategic analysis by business officers. The committee prioritized financial and demographic information that could be easily collected and submitted.


For 2017, SACUBO partnered with the Central Association of College and University Business Officers (CACUBO) for collection of data. In 2018, SACUBO began partnering with the Western Association of College and University Business Officers (WACUBO) and the Eastern Association of College and University Business Officers (EACUBO). The SACUBO Benchmarking Program has now become the ACUBO Benchmarking Program.

Best of all, access to the benchmarking tool, and all the reporting and analytics that comes with it, is FREE!
