The National Association of College and University Business Officers (NACUBO) and the Association of Governing Boards of Universities and Colleges (AGB) have developed a web-based tool that enables financial aid administrators to track the institutional grant aid expenditures at their institutions and compare their aid expenditures against peer institutions. The aid metrics in the tool help institutional leaders make informed decisions about institutional aid policies, practices, and budget allocations. This session will review the “Looking Under the Hood” project, and provide a demonstration of the project’s web-based tool. Session participants will also be given the opportunity to sign up for access to the tool for their campuses.
