In collaboration with the South Dakota Board of Regents, DSU implemented a formal peer selection process. This process involved two key phases:
Phase 1: An initial screening conducted by the system office: By filtering and cluster anlyzing IPEDS data, a full list of each institution's universe of potential peers would be culled to a short list of roughly 15-25 plausible peers.
Phase 2: Final selection based on campus-level review: Each university would examine its short list of plausible peers and designate 5-10 of these institutions as final peers.
For a detailed description of each step, please click here. Below is a list of the criteria used in the peer selection process.
- Carnegie Classification
- Academic emphasis (computers)
- Percentage of undergraduate part-time students
- Total revenue per FTE
- ACT scores
- Pell recipients (%)
