Facts & Figures

In May 2020, five peer graduate health science institutions in the NWCCU accreditation region joined to develop a data-sharing/peer comparison consortium whose common goal is to improve student achievement, including the identification and closure of equity gaps, within their institutions and to comply with Standard 1.D.3. The data on this webpage includes benchmarked disaggregated outcomes for key student outcomes. Each regional peer institution is assigned a numeric identifier to orient stakeholders to individual institutional data. Data are published anonymously to protect institutional confidentiality.

For this comparison data, NUNM used students who entered in the following years and were graduated or left between 2019-2021:

  • Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine – Fall 2014 (clinical doctorate)
  • Master of Science in Oriental Medicine – Fall 2014 (clinical masters)
  • Master of Science in Global Health – Fall 2016 (academic masters)
  • Master of Science in Nutrition – Fall 2017 (academic masters)
