Peer Institutions List (pdf)
These institutions are comparable to the USC regional campuses system, and tenure and promotion candidates may select external reviewers this list. However, candidates are not required to choose individuals from the institutions on this list, and should select appropriate reviewers for their scholarly fields in close consultation with their division chairs and mentors rather than depending solely on this list.
