University Economic Development Association
Established in 1976, the University Economic Development Association(UEDA) is the cornerstone membership organization representing higher education, private sector and community economic development stakeholders. UEDA works to expand economic opportunity in our communities by leveraging research, community resources, campus planning, talent development, and technology commercialization. UEDA's mission is to serve its members by enhancing members' abilities to deliver economic development benefits through engagement with higher education. Through news and information, public policy, educational programming and best practice sharing, UEDA works to expand economic opportunity in our communities.
The Bollinger Foundation is a unique non-profit organization that provides support to children who have lost one or both parents who worked in the economic development profession.
IEDC and international partner organizations are dedicated to promoting an exchange of information, experience, and best practice among economic development practitioners and organizations. These efforts include partnering on initiatves, sharing information, and participating in each other's events in order to improve the integration of economic, social, and environmental agendas.
Entities that are membership organizations assist members of their respective organizations to develop bilateral contacts and/or common projects. The main goal of this collaboration is to facilitate international learning and the development of networks for information sharing between organizations and members.
