Strategic Planning

In his inaugural address, IU’s eighteenth president Michael A. McRobbie articulated an ambitious plan for the university. This vision is distilled in the Principles of Excellence, ten all-encompassing objectives that are Indiana University's roadmap for the future.

In December 2014, the Board of Trustees approved The Bicentennial Strategic Plan for Indiana University which includes eight strategic priorities that will be addressed between now and IU’s bicentennial in 2020. The plan provides a roadmap for IU’s efforts to remain among the best public research universities.

The Bicentennial Strategic Plan for Indiana University sets goals, actions, and measures of performance, for exciting new initiatives in educational excellence and research that will have state, national, and global impact.
