We advance knowledge and practice in higher education economic engagement.

Higher education institutions, private sector businesses and economic development organizations are at the nexus of modern economic growth. Never in history have partnerships between these three sectors been more important in creating sustained economic opportunities in our communities throughout the country.

Established in 1976, UEDA is North America’s membership organization that brings together public and private higher education; private sector; public agencies; and community economic development stakeholders in economic development. UEDA’s members work to expand economic opportunity and prosperity in our communities and regions by leveraging education / talent development; research and technology development; and community-building and place-making strategies.

Through news and information, public policy, educational programming and best practice sharing, UEDA works to expand economic opportunity in our communities by leveraging research, community and campus planning, talent development and technology commercialization.
