Planning for a third century of excellence
As Indiana University prepares to celebrate its Bicentennial in 2020, we have recommitted ourselves to fulfilling the promise we made to the people of Indiana with the university's founding in 1820: to establish an exceptional public institution of higher education that would enrich the civic, cultural, social, and economic life of the state and its citizens.
The Bicentennial Plan for Indiana University lays the groundwork to assure that the university as a whole continues to thrive and meet the challenges of the future while enhancing the lives of the people of Indiana. Organized around the IU Principles of Excellence, the plan provides direction and focus as we move forward as a university.
The campus-specific Bicentennial Strategic Plan for Indiana University Bloomington is intricately aligned with the university plan, drawing on and complementing overarching strategies and goals but with a focus on the unique mission and strengths of the IU Bloomington campus.
