Innovative Benchmarking Platform Delivers Critical, Comparative Insight into Campus Housing Operations and the Residence Life Profession
WINDHAM, NH (PRWeb) – January 18, 2017 - Dynamic Benchmarking, a provider of customized online benchmarking and reporting solutions, is pleased to announce the launch of the Campus Housing Index, an interactive, online benchmarking tool for campus housing professionals. Created for the Association of College and University Housing Officers - International (ACUHO-I), this dynamic, new platform will provide valuable insight into the financial and operational performance of campus housing departments as well as critical information about the campus housing and residence life profession.
“ACUHO-I is here to support campus housing professionals as they embark on the strategic decisions of the day. Research and data are integral to this process, and an area where our members are asking for increased support,” says ACUHO-I CEO and Executive Director, Mary DeNiro. “The Campus Housing Index will serve as the vehicle with which important data will be collected and also represents a place where housing professionals will be able get the answers they need.”
Launched in November 2016, the Campus Housing Index collects data on key performance indicators including Facilities, Business Operations, Compensation, Residential Services and Residence Life as well as a complete Campus Profile for each participating organization. The Campus Housing Index replaces prior efforts to collect and distribute this data using multiple platforms and surveys. The new Campus Housing Index also replaces static, one-size-fits-all results with customizable, self-serve reporting that delivers meaningful, on-demand data to individual organizations.
“The nature of campus housing and residence life work has always required organizations to be adaptable and well-informed,” adds Beth McCuskey, ACUHO-I President. “As the costs associated with higher education continue to increase and budgets become more streamlined, campuses must be even more deliberate in their decision-making. To a great degree, this means understanding the nuances of our own organizations and being able to discuss how they compare with other institutions. The functionality of the Campus Housing Index stands to play a significant role in the way professionals in the field manage this process.”
