The University of Minnesota is committed to the use of good benchmarking data and promotes this practice by hosting the administration of  AAUDE in the office of Enterprise Data Management and Reporting (EDMR).

AAUDE specializes in collegially exchanged administrative data for internal use by member universities. EDMR staff oversee the operations, development of the data exchange, and the professional development program for AAUDE member universities.

Benchmarking Tool

AAUDE has collected a variety of publicly available resources including government data, contextual information, program descriptions, and ranking data which are available within the profile data for Minnesota.


In addition to a range of reports and rankings for the University of Minnesota, public data on a number of US schools can be accessed via the "Search for a Single Institution" dropdown. Available data sources vary by institution.
