Peer Institutions

In 2011, in concert with UNC-GA, NC State selected 16 similar institutions for benchmarking its performance. These institutions, selected based on data published by IPEDS and other sources, are meant to be a meaningful comparison group, with a mixture of both comparable and aspirational peers.  Values in the table are from the base year when the selection process took place, 2009-10.
