Strategic Planning

Strategic Plan

The IU Northwest Council is leading a campus planning exercise during Spring Semester 2015 that will:

  • Test alignment of IU Northwest’s Strategic Priorities with the Indiana University Bicentennial Strategic Plan and Blueprint for Student Attainment for IU Regional Campuses 2.0;
  • Update and refine the IU Northwest Strategic Priorities;
  • Elaborate the IU Northwest Strategic Priorities format, to include concise campus-level objectives, for implementation at the unit/operational level.

The planning exercise will result in a draft that will be distributed for discussion and response to the Faculty Organization and other campus constituencies during the remainder of the 2014-15 academic year.
