Indiana University has a vast repertoire of intellectual and creative assets in all parts of the state. Connecting these assets with strategic opportunities to foster economic growth requires coordinated engagement across all IU campuses. The IU Council for Regional Engagement and Economic Development (CREED) facilitates this coordination.
CREED addresses regional economic concerns and identifies ways that IU can use its resources to advance economic development efforts in the state. CREED is responsible for reviewing applications for Regional Economic Development (RED) Fund grants and for awarding them to qualifying IU entities across the state.
