UCF Peer Institutions

UCF has developed a list of peer institutions for benchmarking purposes. Fourteen “comparison” institutions are appropriate for benchmarking comparisons, while eight additional “aspirational” institutions are considered to be stronger in some measures and may be of assistance in various planning and target-setting exercises.
