Our Work

IEP Executive Committee

Much like the IEP designation process itself, APLU embraces a continuous improvement model for the IEP program. We seek to better know, measure, tell, and grow the impact of IEP, and we seek to do it alongside IEP designees. The IEP Growth and Improvement Committee was established to help APLU realize the full potential of the IEP Universities program and maximize its impact on higher education institutions and the communities they serve. Engaged and active IEP Campus Contacts who have led the IEP process on behalf of their institution work with the IEP Program Director to refine and enhance the IEP Universities program.
