Our Work

Member Involvement

The tools in the Economic Engagement Framework are products of the effort of many individuals over a number of years. Leaders from APLU member institutions, as well as many stakeholder organizations, participated in planning meetings and preparation of drafts along the way to final publication of the Economic Engagement Framework tools. We have recognized these contributors in the acknowledgements of each publication (download the publications here).
