State University’s Centennial Campus has received national recognition for what the judges called “its reinvention of the very notion of what a research park should be.” The Association of Public and Land-grant Universities named four winners of its second annual Innovation and Economic Prosperity University Awards. N.C. State’s Centennial Campus received the “Place” award for “creating a self-sustained city” that includes research facilities, industry offices, residential and retail properties and the James B.
