Surveys and Benchmark Data

Contract Education

We periodically conduct surveys of contract education units in the state to compile data that can be used for benchmarking purposes. Information collected from the survey responses is used to inform contract education units about general business practices in contract education and how contract education units achieve high levels of performance. 

Data for the National CE 2017 Benchmark Survey was collected during the spring of 2017. A total of 58 community colleges representing twenty-two (22) states participated. Each participating college responded to twenty-two (22) questions related to the following nine contract education areas:  Funding, Structure, Revenue/Sales, Service Offerings, Industry Sectors, Marketing, IT Systems, Success Factors and Challenges & Goals.

If you have a survey question you would like to submit for the next statewide survey, please contact Margaret Schmidt.
