Realizing the vision: Strategic plan progress

We continue to make significant progress on many of the projects defined by our Vision 2030 strategic plan, from programs and services to new construction.

The steel frame of the UIndy Health Pavilion is already in place; when complete, the pavilion will help us to realize your vision for multidisciplinary teaching, research, and community service. We are selecting a contractor for our library renovation. We have two new lacrosse coaches who are already at work building the new men’s and women’s teams that will debut in August 2015. And, we’ve made a significant investment in our full-time faculty, which lowered our student-to-faculty ratio from 15 to 1 to 12 to 1.

In addition, we recently hosted a special presentation by renowned astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, and we’re more than halfway to our goal for the Champions Challenge, aimed at generating funds for programs and capital improvements in the Department of Athletics. It’s been quite a year!

I look forward to keeping you updated on the progress of the strategic plan and of the University as a whole. I hope you will stay connected and continue helping us make the collective vision a reality. You can drop me a line at
