The Benchmarking Institute was created over 10 years ago when funding was received from the Department of Education’s Fund for the Improvement of Postsecondary Education (FIPSE) to establish “The Kansas Study”. At the same time the NCCBP was conceived with the generous support of Johnson County Community College.  The Workforce Training Benchmarking Project and Maximizing Resources for Student Success were developed in recent years.

The long-term success of the projects has made the Benchmarking Institute the provider of community college benchmarking and peer comparison services in the country.
