To be one of the great research universities of the 21st century and to be the preeminent institution of higher education in Indiana, specifically by:

  1. Providing an excellent, relevant, and responsive education across a wide range of disciplines in baccalaureate, graduate, and professional education to students from all backgrounds from Indiana and around the globe;
  2. Pursuing excellent world-class research, scholarship, and creative activity; and
  3. Engaging in the economic, social, civic, and cultural development of Indiana, the nation, and the world by building on the base of excellence in research and education.

Indiana University will take full advantage of the differentiated missions of the Bloomington, IUPUI, and IU Regional Campuses to pursue this vision, and it will be both entrepreneurial and collaborative in pursuing the vision and generating the resources to accomplish it.
