In spring 2008 the Planning Committee approved a new peer group for Dominican University.  Factors such as enrollment, location, average test scores, endowment, tuition costs, and religious affiliation were examined to determine similarities.  Because of the complexity of our university structure and the graduate level programs we offer, not all comparative variables are in alignment.  These universities provide us with a group to use for benchmarking in many categories and allow us to study best practices at like institutions.

Below is the list of Dominican University's Peer Group.

  • Benedictine University (IL)
  • Capital University (OH)
  • College of St. Catherine (MN)

  • St. Mary's College of California
