UNM Peer Institutions

Peer institutions are selected as a means to benchmark university performance against a set of similar institutions. The Higher Education Department (HED) Peer Group is comprised of institutions that the New Mexico HED recognizes as our institutional peers. The IPEDS comparison set is comprised of public research universities from Southwestern states as well as some universities located in the Midwest and Southeastern U.S.

Peer Institutions Approved by the Higher Education Department

 The peers were chosen because their academic program offerings, enrollments, and mission closely resemble UNM's.

Peer Institutions Used for IPEDS Comparisons

The ten selected institutions provide a comparison group that includes a mix of demographically similar and aspirational peers with a health sciences center.
