Using benchmarking to inform practice in higher education by Barbara E Bender( Book )

5 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 405 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Declining confidence in the academy, combined with increasing scrutiny of higher education by funding agencies, legislators, and the public, is driving academic leaders to better demonstrate the extent to which their colleges and universities are meeting goals. Benchmarking, a tool that has been used for years in industry; is one approach higher education leaders can use to measure the extent to which institutional objectives are being met." "This volume of New Directions for Higher Education provides different perspectives on the application of benchmarking in higher education. The authors present conceptual overviews and organizational examples of how benchmarking can be used in colleges and universities. Our expectation is that the reader will develop an appreciation of benchmarking as an administrative tool, including a greater awareness of its strengths and limitations. Administrators or faculty members in higher education will be able to develop their own strategies for using benchmarking in their practice."--Jacket

8 editions published between 2006 and 2015 in English and held by 283 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the day-to-day work of higher education administration, student affairs professionals know that different institutional types-whether a small liberal arts college, a doctoral intensive institution, or a large private university-require different practical approaches. Despite this, most student affairs literature emphasizes a ""one size fits all"" approach to practice, giving little attention to the differing models of student affairs practice and their diversity across institutions. In the second edition of this influential book, leading scholars Kathleen Manning, Jillian Kinzie, and Joh

This sourcebook reminds student affairs educators of the importance of developing an assessment program and explores topics that will add depth and richness to such a program. From
