IEP Universities Steering Committee

The Innovation and Economic Prosperity Universities program is facilitated by member leadership from APLU's Commission on Innovation, Competitiveness & Economic Prosperity (CICEP) and by APLU's Office of Economic Development & Community Engagement.

The IEP Universities Steering Committee provides member oversight for the program and assists APLU staff in continuous development and growth throughout the program components. The steering committee is comprised of the leaders of each of the three IEP subcommittees - the Designation Subcommittee, the Awards Subcommittee and the Learning Exchange Subcommittee.
