Workforce, Industry, and Economic Development (WIED) was a unit of Cornell University's ILR School focused on providing applied economic expertise.

WIED was committed to promoting the creation of good jobs and stimulating workforce development to strengthen the New York State and global economy. While the WIED unit was discontinued by the ILR School in 2008, its documents will remain here for research and archival purposes.
