APLU's Commission on Innovation, Competitiveness, and Economic Prosperity (CICEP) was created to help leaders of APLU member universities—including presidents and chancellors, senior research officers, provosts, other officers and their staffs—plan, assess, and communicate their institutions' work in local and regional economic development. Our new Strategic Framework presents CICEP goals and operational objectives to reach these goals.
GOAL 1: CICEP will lead APLU efforts to promote, facilitate, support, and communicate about university economic engagement. GOAL 2: CICEP will be a nationally recognized resource for sharing best practices in economic engagement among public research universities’ officers and their teams. Themes for best practices will include leadership engagement, innovation, entrepreneurship, technology transfer, commercialization, education and talent development, and cultivation of place in regions. CICEP will also coordinate development of new tools and resources for public research universities to better measure their activities and contributions to the local, state, regional, and national economy.GOAL 3: CICEP will act as a key convener and collaborator to develop strong connections and partnerships among leadership of APLU member universities and with external partners from industry, government, and other science, research, and economic development focused organizations.GOAL 4: In consultation with university leaders and staff members responsible for economic engagement efforts, CICEP will develop communication strategies to bring greater clarity and visibility to university economic development work. Strategies will emphasize deepening industry, government, and public commitment to our universities and their role in economic prosperity.CICEP will remain flexible on the specific objectives it pursues in order to be responsive to shifts in APLU and institutional ecosystems, and to be opportunistic in developing resources and relationships to advance our goals. Operational objectives and activities will continue to be discussed, identified, and pursued through ongoing conversations between the CICEP Chair, APLU staff, CICEP Executive Committee, and participants in CICEP committees and working groups.
