An essential task for GEBG member schools is to provide data through the Annual Benchmark Survey. Although the survey is comprehensive, collecting this data not only gives us an understanding of the state of global education, but allows schools the opportunity to reflect and analyze the impact of global education at their institution year over year. Schools report that multiple years of data have helped identify curricular and enrollment goals and generated information that is useful to a range of offices at their schools. Housed in the GEBG Database the data is intended to be a dynamic source of information that will help schools evaluate and shape their programs – participation in collecting this information will help us all move the field of global education forward.
The following examples of data are from the 2014-2015 Annual Benchmark Survey. Historical data includes data from the 2013-2014 and 2012-2013 surveys. Once member schools enter their own information they have access to the full data in the database and archived reports in the wiki.
