Operating Measure for Independent Institutions
Throughout higher education's history there has never been agreement about a relevant operating measure for colleges and universities. Development of a single, fundamental operating measure for independent higher education institutions addresses stakeholders concerns of measurement consistency. NACUBO continues to work with a wide range of participants from many sectors of higher education in the ongoing discussion of a uniform measure.
Defining an Operating Measure, the culmination of a long-term project of NACUBO's Accounting Principles Council, offers advisory guidance.
