Who Does Your College Think Its Peers Are? — from chronicle.com by Jacquelyn Elias


Each year, universities choose their peer institutions when reporting their data to the U.S. Department of Education’s Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System, or Ipeds. In return, they receive a customized report that compares their performance to that of their selected peers on various measures, like enrollment, graduation rates, and average staff salaries.

The Chronicle compiled the peer institutions for nearly 1,500 institutions from the 2020-21 year. Explore to see whom your college considers to be its peers — and who thinks your college is its peer.
