July 10, 2014 -- In recognition of a strong commitment to economic engagement, the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities (APLU) today designated 14 public institutions as Innovation & Economic Prosperity Universities. The designation acknowledges universities working with public and private sector partners in their states and regions to support economic development through a variety of activities, including innovation and entrepreneurship, technology transfer, talent and workforce development, and community development. Each university received the designation after conducting a thorough self-review with outside stakeholder input and subsequently submitting an application that went through a rigorous independent review process.
