APLU is keeping our members impacted by recent natural disasters in our thoughts and prayers. We have heard from institutions that suffered from Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria and below is information on how you can support recovery efforts. We would be happy to add other campus- or student-focused relief funds. Institutions with such relief funds can email APLU with a link for the funds to be added.
Jim Woodell, APLU’s Vice President for Economic Development and Community Engagement, recently led a delegation of APLU member universities to China. The four universities — North Carolina State University, Northern Illinois University, State University of New York, and the University of Massachusetts Boston — are all designated APLU Innovation and Economic Prosperity (IEP) Universities. Economic engagement leaders from the institutions were representing the IEP Universities program as part of the trip.
