Message from the Provost
Throughout the past several months, the IU Bloomington Strategic Planning Committee, comprising 167 faculty members, staff members, and students, dedicated itself to envisioning a third century of academic excellence on our campus.
This extraordinary group took on the most challenging questions our campus faces about the future of our faculty, research, undergraduate education, graduate education, diversity, international initiatives for students, international programs and facilities, and interdisciplinary initiatives in the areas of humanities and arts, health sciences, design, and STIM (science, technology, informatics, and math). Their final reports are shared in the Team Reports section.
Based on these reports, I have drawn together a draft of a Strategic Plan for Indiana University Bloomington.
Please take the time to read through this draft and share your thoughts and suggestions using the comment form below. The public comment period will continue through March 19th. These comments will guide my revisions as I prepare to submit the plan to President McRobbie.
I would like to thank everyone who attended the Town Hall Meeting on Tuesday, March 4th. The turnout was encouraging, and the questions and comments were all very productive.
I am extremely grateful for all the time and energy that the Strategic Planning Committee invested in this process, and for the outstanding IU Bloomington faculty, staff, and students who continue to shape this magnificent institution each day.Lauren Robel Provost and Executive Vice President
