PNW Innovation in Action
- PNW was elevated by the Higher Learning Commission to a doctoral-granting institution, coinciding with the approval of PNW’s third applied doctoral program, a Doctor of Psychology.
- PNW helps power our region. Our impact includes $745.9 million of total income: 2 percent of gross regional product.
- With nearly 20 research and specialty centers, PNW is committed to deepening our understanding of the world around us.
- All these factors contributed to PNW being named the third Innovation and Economic Prosperity University in Indiana.
I am excited to continue pushing the boundaries of innovation to ensure PNW remains a leader in regional economic development and workforce development.
