IU 2030 strategic planning accelerating on all campuses

IU staff and faculty have been working on individual campus plans after IU's strategic planni... Since the September launch of IU 2030, the university’s strategic planning framework, faculty and staff across Indiana University campuses have been actively working on individual campus plans.

The university’s seven-year strategic plan is united around a bold vision to provide broad access to an education for all students; pursue world-class research, scholarship and creative activity; and improve the health, economic, social, civic and cultural development of the state, nation and world.

The framework aligns all campus-specific plans that will not only affect the future of the university but also expand IU’s impact at the state, national and global levels.

“The enthusiasm and support for IU 2030 is evident from the hundreds of faculty and staff involved in the campus-specific planning efforts,” President Pamela Whitten said. “During my recent campus visits, I’ve learned about the bold thinking underway and the innovative ideas taking shape within the planning groups charged with this important work.”

Highlights of IU 2030 faculty and staff campus planning development include:

  • IU Bloomington launched a comprehensive strategic plan website and has so far engaged more than 400 faculty, staff and students, with hundreds of others expressing interest in providing input.
  • IUPUI planning committee members are drafting plans for each focus area, with an emphasis on key actions and metrics. Regional education centers IU Fort Wayne and IUPUC are collaborating with IUPUI on their efforts.
  • IU East has been hosting multiple presentations and coffee events across campus, with planning committees formed and co-chairs named.
  • IU Kokomo is engaging key stakeholder groups and has appointed members for committee work.
  • With a goal of integrating their existing plan into the IU 2030 framework, IU Northwest faculty and staff are focusing on outcomes and strategies in their planning work, under the direction of a 30-member planning committee.
  • After sharing an overview of the planning process at a gathering of the Academic Senate, IU South Bend is working to identify any gaps between current goals and the IU 2030 framework.
  • IU Southeast detailed work on the plan in a recent Town Hall, with strategic plan subcommittee work underway.

Be sure to look for more strategic planning updates on campus websites and on IU’s strategic plan website.
