The Keystone Initiative for Network Based Education and Research (KINBER) is a nonprofit coalition of Pennsylvania's education, research, healthcare, economic development, and other nonprofit-based communities. IUP, as a university of the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education, is part of this important initiative.

KINBER's first project is PennREN, the Pennsylvania Research and Education Network. You can read more about KINBER and the PennREN project at:
