Are there standard criteria to determine the peer institutions?
My institution is an american private liberal art university that follows the semester system, for which I can think of the following criteria:
- Liberal art university
- Private university
- Semester-based university
- Endowment of the university
- Number of faculty in the department
- Number of graduates with BS every 3 years say
- Number of graduates with MS every 3 years say
Will that be OK? anything else?
