How were the Funding Peers developed?

For funding and institutional performance comparisons, Salisbury University is considered a peer to those universities closest to it on a number of variables identified by the Maryland Higher Education Commission. The Commission defined five variations, each with different variables, in which SU is compared against institutions in the same Carnegie class. Each variable in each variation is calculated for a variable “proximity-score” and when totaled, the 20 closest institutions to SU are considered funding peers in that single variation. Since there are five variations, it would be possible to have 100 institutions in the peer funding group. However, because there is typically a considerable amount of institutional overlap across variations, 52 funding peers were generated for SU after the 2007 recalculation. From those "52 funding peers" Salisbury University is required to select 10 performance peers. These performance peers are used for state-level comparisons.
