In recognition of Georgia Tech’s commitment to economic development, the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities (APLU) has designated the Institute as an Innovation and Economic Prosperity University.

The designation acknowledges Tech’s work with public and private sector partners in the state and region to support economic development through innovation and entrepreneurship, technology transfer, workforce development, and community development. Tech received the designation after conducting a self-review and submitting an application for independent review.

“Public universities serve as economic engines for their local communities and states by conducting cutting-edge research to reach new breakthroughs, and by developing the talent to help existing businesses grow stronger and enabling new ones to develop and thrive,” APLU President Peter McPherson said. “The institutions receiving the 2014 Innovation and Economic Prosperity University designation serve as models. They demonstrate how public research universities extend beyond their campuses to engage their communities in economic development that creates jobs and improves lives.”

The IEP designation is valid for five years, and requires an application for re-designation.
