University of Indianapolis Vision 2030

UIndy's 2012-13 "Vision 2030" strategic planning was a highly inclusive process, which culled opinions from 1,600 individual sources and resulted in development of a clear direction forward for the University.

The long-term and short-term goals and recommendations that developed out of this process were reviewed by the Planning Commission, which helped identify priorities for the next few years.

Three areas emerged from the planning process as focal points for action to help UIndy expand in relevance and reputation, and further establish the University as an anchor institution in surrounding University Heights.

Those three focal points are: (1) the student experience and engagement, (2) faculty/staff excellence, and (3) community involvement and engagement. Some 32 initiatives were identified to drive the University toward excellence and distinction in those three focal areas. The Board of Trustees adopted this strategic planning framework in May 2013. 

In February 2014, the Board of Trustees approved a five-year plan of capital projects and educational enhancements that will be achieved through an investment of $50 million in the University and neighboring community. We’ve identified priorities that position the University to be distinctive and that benefit the community through economic development. After 18 months of planning, we are now in the implementation phase of our Vision 2030 strategic plan.
