Relaunching ACU Measures – Supporting you and your university
ACU Measures, our annual online benchmarking service, has now re-launched and the first survey, the Supporting Research Survey, is open. We’re pleased that over 100 universities have already signed up.
What is ACU Measures?
This is a service that helps benchmark a university’s performance in key areas of management in a confidential, non-competitive, and non-ranking way
It supports member organisations to compare practices and policies with their peers, providing insights to support senior university management and convene ACU members around common issues, shared challenges, and the exchange of expertise and good practice.
The service has been redesigned with our members to create a more responsive and informative annual service. New features now include bespoke reports using aggregated and analysed data collected from the completed surveys in the Spring and will be shared with universities from September.
What are the benefits?

How to get involved
The first survey is available now and is focused on the research community. It is called the Supporting Research Survey. The link has been sent to primary contacts at member universities who are responsible for coordinating the completion of the survey on behalf of their institution.
As the survey collects institutional rather than departmental/faculty data or individual views, we suggest ownership of the survey resides with a senior contact responsible for research and research support activities at your university. Typically, this would be your Pro Vice Chancellor, Vice Provost/President or Director of Research.
If your university has not received details on how to access the survey, then please fill out the Primary Contact Form. Further information will then be sent to your primary contact.
The closing date for completion of the Supporting Research Survey is July 2022.
