APLU IEP Designation

NC State received the Innovation and Economic Prosperity (IEP) University Award through the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities (APLU) in 2014. NC State was singled out for the “Place” award, given in recognition of “its reinvention of the very notion of what a research park should be.” Judges praised the university for “creating a self-sustained city” on Centennial Campus.
