Texas Tech University President M. Duane Nellis recently was appointed to the executive committee of the Commission on Innovation, Competitiveness, and Economic Prosperity (CICEP), which represents the economic development and technology transfer roles at higher education institutions nationwide.

Appointed by Association of Public and Land-Grant Universities President Peter McPherson, Nellis will serve on the executive committee in 2014, alongside other university presidents and administrators.

“This is a tremendous opportunity that gives Texas Tech University a seat at the table and a voice in discussing the future of innovation and economic development in higher education,” Nellis said. “I appreciate the leadership of Dr. McPherson and look forward to serving our peers on this important committee.”

The purpose of the committee is to provide direction and vision based on the CICEP Strategic Framework. Among the responsibilities of the committee, members suggest new initiatives, provide guidance on existing initiatives to the CICEP Implementation Committee and identify prospective external and APLU partners for collaboration on efforts of mutual interest.
