Peer Data

Peer institutions provide benchmark comparisons that are essential to Seattle University's assessment strategies and are used as one component in determining the relative health, growth, and progress of our institution toward our strategic goals. These peer institutions are similar to Seattle University across multiple dimensions (e.g., mission, selectivity, Carnegie classification, size of student population, endowments) and taken together, this peer group provides an aspirational “stretch” as we measure our institutional progress.
