Milwaukee, Wisconsin – November 6, 2018 – The University Economic Development Association(UEDA) announced winners of its annual Awards of Excellence program during their Annual Summit in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
Leading initiatives from across North America competed in a six-month process, including application, peer review, live presentations, and, ultimately, selection by attendees of the UEDA Annual Summit as category leaders. The Awards of Excellence Program recognizes organizations who are transforming their campuses into engines of economic prosperity through leading edge initiatives in six categories: 1) Innovation; 2) Innovation + Talent; 3) Talent 4) Talent + Place; 5) Place; and 6) Place + Innovation. This year, in conjunction with the reveal of their new brand, UEDA added the Editor’s Choice Award. The Editor’s Choice Award is given to a recipient of each of the categories. What makes this award so special, though, is that it is not selected from the finalist of the category, but the winner is chosen from all those who sent in proposals.
