I would say that the average University is more of an unusual ISP than a non-ISP.
Almost every University I know of has a networking group that functions like an ISP for the various departments of the
college(s) as well as providing essentially residential ISP services to their
residence halls and in some cases fraternities, faculty housing, etc.
From a networking perspective they tend to operate much more like an ISP than an enterprise.
One of the key defining differences (IMHO) is that an enterprise (mostly) trusts the employees connected to its network
whereas an ISP and a University cannot.

We run IS-IS at the University of Pennsylvania as the IGP for
IPv6. I know of a few other non-ISPs too but I won't speak for
them. At the time we initially deployed IPv6, it was pretty
much one of the few safe choices (OSPFv3 implementations were
very new then).

How widespread would you say the use of IS-IS is?
Even more as to which routing protocols are used, not just in ISPs,
what percent would you give to the various ones. In other words X
percent of organizations use OSPS, Y percent use EIGRP, and so on.
Using EIGRP implies your routed IGP dependent infrastructure is a
monoculture. That's probably infeasible without compromise even if you are
largely a Cisco shop.
ISIS is used in organizations other than ISPs.
