The Student Affairs Benchmarking Surveys are a collection of assessment instruments focused on key areas within student affairs. Participating campuses can select assessments to administer during an academic year based on campus priorities. These studies are designed to provide colleges and universities with actionable campus-specific and benchmarking data to shape and enhance programming inside and outside the classroom.

We advise that you administer large benchmarks like these studies on a 2-4 year cycle. Unless you have implemented a large change on campus, it is not necessary to collect this information every year. You are certainly welcome to participate in any study any year that works best for your campus, but we highlight three studies a year to encourage participation. Below is the rotation for the next three years:


  • Campus Activities
  • Career & Professional Aspirations
  • Student Conduct


  • Student Union & Programming
  • Recreation & Wellness


  • Fraternity & Sorority Life
  • Orientation & New Student Programs
  • Residence Life
