Innovation & Economic Prosperity University Designees

IEP designated institutions have demonstrated a meaningful, substantial, and sustainable commitment to  university economic engagement. New classes of IEP Designees are recognized by APLU and its Commission on Economic and Community Engagement during each APLU Annual Meeting, the world's largest convening of public university presidents, provosts, vice-presidents, and other senior administrators. Upon earning this distinction, institutions continue to learn and benefit from the IEP Universities program by joining a vibrant and internationally recognized community of practice around economic engagement. Learn more about pursing the designation by reviewing the application guidelines and other details.
