NIU honored for economic development programs
DeKALB – Northern Illinois University is among the first 16 institutions nationwide designated as an “Innovation and Economic Prosperity University” by the Association of Public and Land-Grant Universities (APLU).
The designation acknowledges universities working with public and private sector partners to support economic development in their state or region. In addition, NIU was named one of six national finalists for APLU’s inaugural Innovation and Economic Prosperity Award.
“Universities are economic engines that not only directly employ people, but also generate research-based innovation and technical expertise that allow businesses to start up, grow, and thrive,” said APLU President Peter McPherson.
