Comparison with Other Institutions on Key Academic Indicators
Updated October, 2013
Mission-oriented thinking requires objectivity: an honest assessment of how an institution is doing, where it is heading, and its alignment with its mission.

The academic indicators focus on areas that are measurable and can be found in U.S. News & World Report's publication, America's Best Colleges.
There is no right or wrong value for any indicator. It is important to know our position relative to peer institutions, and then to understand the reasons for disparities. These academic indicators provide a framework for understanding better our academic characteristics and for taking steps to improve the institution.
