ETSU identifies other institutions for operational and benchmarking comparisons. Such comparisons can be made with similar or aspirational (peer) institutions.
Data for comparative analysis frequently are obtained from standardized, public collection tools many institutions use, such as The Post-Secondary Integrated System (IPEDS), The Association of University Professors (AAUP), and The Common Data Set. Typical data which are collected and summarized with these tools are: institutional characteristics, admission selectivity, retention and graduation rates, student demographics, financial aid, tuition, faculty demographics, research and service awards, and degrees offered and awarded.
