Comparison and Peer Institutions
Comparison and Aspirational Peer Institutions
The use of reference or comparison groups is a common feature of post-secondary institutions, especially those funded by various state and public monies. In fact, benchmarking has become a requirement of various accrediting agencies who are interested in how institutions perform when compared to other institutions.
The following comparison/aspirational institutions were selected per the 2017-2022 One UND Strategic Plan.
