WCU has 18 designated peer institutions and 6 UNC system peers. These institutions were selected according to comparable Carnegie classifications and key metrics such as tuition and fees, faculty salaries and workload, enrollment, retention and graduation rates, location, and control (e.g. private non-profit vs. public).
The Institutional Peer List provides the most recent list of peer institutions with key benchmarking metrics using the latest available IPEDS data. (this is a new peer list - benchmarking metrics coming soon)
