"The Competitive Edge" will be issued bimonthly and will include special links to information from Colorado State’s Office of Economic Development, the Everitt Real Estate Center, Continuing Education and other business-oriented programs at the university.

Penley, a former dean of business and current president of Colorado State in Fort Collins, will oversee the content to ensure it is relevant and practical for Colorado’s business community.

"Colorado State is setting the standard for the 21st century land-grant university by seeking new ways to provide research, knowledge and information to the industries that drive our state economy," Penley said. "The Competitive Edge newsletter is one way to get the latest research on industry and issues directly to the people who can best use that information."
