Comparisons of the University of Maryland (the University) with peer institutions are provided concerning characteristics of the student population, institutional resources, and financial resources and expenditure patterns. Findings include the following: part-time enrollment at the University accounts for a significantly higher proportion of total enrollment than is the case for the peer group as a whole; the University enrolls a greater proportion of its students as undergraduates than do the peers; average faculty salaries at the University for the ranks of professor, associate professor, and assistant professor are comparable to those of peers; administrative salaries for 23 positions at the University are below medians for the peer group; the University expended significantly less per student for libraries than did its peer institutions during funding year 1982; and wide variations among institutions existed during 1982 in total revenues and expenditures, in expenditures by program, and revenues by source among institutions. Information is also provided on National Merit Scholars, Scholastic Aptitude Test scores, and budget guidelines. Information on the peer institutions are appended. (SW)
