Most private Christian Colleges face major challenges that can impact their financial health, growth, and sustainability. Our research has shown that few Christian Colleges and Universities have access to the business intelligence tools that will help them strategically address these issues. Performance measurement and benchmarking are two of the most powerful tools that Presidents, CFOs, and Education Leaders can use to navigate through and optimize the use of resources. Measures and benchmarks enable leaders to quantify performance and compare their performance to peer-based standards.


Enlīt has a well-developed system of measures that give insight into the strategic, operational, and tactical performance of education organizations and departments. We use advanced accounting methods, such as activity-based costing, management accounting, and the balanced scorecard to build models that give leaders a deeper understanding of how efficiently and effectively resources are being used. Our system offers both traditional statistical analyses, as well as trend analysis, data visualization and scorecards that help leaders quickly access and understand their data. We select measures that are actionable and can impact the results in the area assessed.

National Christian College and University Benchmarking Project

The Christian College and University Benchmarking Project is designed to fill a gap in current measurement, benchmarking and business intelligence capabilities within the Christian College and University community. We are offering Christian school leaders the opportunity to begin or advance their use of strategic and operations analytics and intelligence in a phased manner. Our practical, strategic approach will allow leadership teams the opportunity to “test” the methodology, and then decide to either 1) stop using the system without penalty, or 2) progress as far as they like with the use of our system. Ultimately, the Enlīt system can serve as a single source business intelligence system that supports Institutional Research, benchmarking, and district-wide use of analytics for decision-making, planning, and reporting purposes. Our system also has the potential, with the right data, to generate reports such as the CFI, Moody’s, and streamline IPED reporting.
