UNLV Peer Listing

Aspirant and Peer Listing

In spring 2017, UNLV adopted aspirant and peer institutions, which is consistent with NSHE. These institutions were selected to allow us to compare ourselves with other institutions.

Aspirational Institutions

  • University of Central Florida (UCF)
  • University of Houston (UH)
  • Arizona State University (ASU)

Peer Institutions

  • San Diego State University (SDSU)
  • University of Texas – San Antonio (UTSA)
  • University of North Texas (UNT)

Expanded Peer Listing

Previously, our original peer listing (known as the Expanded Peer Listing) was utilized as the Top Tier strategic plan was being developed. While this expanded list helps provide more options for benchmarking, most often utilize our aspirant and peers as identified above.
