Peer Land Grant Universities

This group of 10 land-grant universities was adopted as a peer comparison group for Iowa State University in 1986 and updated in 2016. The Iowa Board of Regents approved a change that replaced the University of Arizona with Penn State University. Each is the public land-grant university in its state, and all peers are classified as Doctoral Universities: Highest Research Activity in the 2015 Carnegie Classification of Higher Education.
