1Data for the National Survey of Student Engagement are not reported separately by campus. Freshmen results are displayed for Macomb as the Quad Cities Campus does not admit new beginning freshmen. Senior results are combined for the Macomb and Quad Cities Campus and are placed in the Both Campuses display.

Institutional data details are discussed in the pages that follow. To further inform campus planning and accountability reporting, the University’s most current performance (fall 2010 or Fiscal Year 2011) is reported on a longitudinal basis. Western’s performance is also compared to a subset of the Illinois public universities requested by the Board of Trustees (i.e., Eastern Illinois University, Illinois State University, Southern Illinois University, the University of Illinois-Springfield, and Western Illinois University), all Illinois public universities, as well as Macomb and Quad Cities Campus benchmark institutions. In most cases, benchmarking data is for the previous year (fall 2010 or Fiscal Year 2011) due to secondary data publishing schedules.

For salary comparisons, the agreed upon University Professionals of Illinois-Western Illinois University peer group is used.
