Peer Institutions

The UAS Strategic and Assessment Planning Committee reviewed the UAS self-selected Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS) peer group institutions during academic year 2012-2013 and updated the list in May 2013.

The updated peer group institutions are public 4-year and above institutions similar to UAS in size (most are in the 1,000-4,999 students size category) and geographic location (Far West, Southwest, Plains, and Rocky Mountains). Data characterizing our peers is available through the National Center for Education Statistics using IPEDS IDs (the UAS ID is 102632), or from the institutions' common data sets or Institutional Research offices.

Details of UAS Peer Institutions

In June 2017 UA Statewide Institutional Research and Budget published a report on the various peer groups for the University of Alaska System, the University of Alaska Anchorage, the University of Alaska Fairbanks, and the University of Alaska Southeast.
