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. This plan presents broad strategic goals that will require coordination and cooperation across the campus. Once the plan is finalized, we will define a timeline for implementing objectives leading up to our 2020 bicentennial. With very few exceptions, the actions and indicators of progress outlined by individual Team Reports will guide decisions as we prioritize objectives and implement the plan.
For additional context on the Strategic Plan and the implementation process, it may be helpful to view this brief presentation.
After you have read the draft Strategic Plan, I encourage you to share your thoughts and questions with me 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.Lauren Robel Provost and Executive Vice President
