We are pleased to present Indiana University South Bend’s 2030 Plan. Thanks go out to the Campus Directions Committee for its leadership and all the students, staff, faculty, and community members who were engaged in the process. This document outlines a dynamic plan that will be a beacon for our strategic direction, as well as a lens to focus our decision-making. We look forward to continuing to work with the Campus Directions Committee, as well as the entire campus community as we come together to implement this new plan. While we face challenges, we are at an inflection point in our history that will take us in new directions and, in fact, has already done so. We have much to be proud of and many opportunities in front of us to leverage as we move forward confidently with this new plan. One thing we know for certain is that we remain a critical intellectual, social, and economic driver for our community. As an important anchor institution for the Michiana region, we have tremendous potential for growth and even greater impact in our community. We are confident that this new plan will guide us into a brighter and even more successful future.
