Auburn University: An Innovation and Economic Prosperity University

July 24, 2015

Joe Picture 2 2015The Association of Public and Land-grant Universities (APLU), one of the nation’s top higher education associations, has recognized Auburn University for leadership in fostering economic growth, prosperity, and innovation. In June 2015, APLU named Auburn an Innovation and Economic Prosperity University, a designation that recognizes the university’s strong commitment to economic engagement and its work with public and private sector partners in Alabama and the region. The Economic & Community Development Institute, a partnership between AU Outreach and the Alabama Cooperative Extension System, plays a central role in Auburn University’s economic engagement efforts and we are honored by this prestigious recognition. Auburn was one of 18 universities named in APLU’s third annual class of Innovation and Economic Prosperity Universities. It is the only university in the state of Alabama to earn the designation. APLU is a research, policy and advocacy organization dedicated to strengthening and advancing the work of public universities in the U.S., Canada and Mexico. It has a membership of 238 public research universities, land-grant institutions, state university systems, and affiliated organizations.
