2010 State of the
University Address

Following a year of record-breaking progress, Indiana University will rededicate itself to the "principles of excellence" that have helped the university position itself as one of the state's most successful enterprises in spite of continuing financial challenges.

IU President Michael McRobbie delivered his State of the University address today (Sept. 28) from the IUPUI campus.

In his address, McRobbie outlined six core principles that will guide the university over the next decade leading up to the university's bicentenary in 2020: ensuring an excellent education; recruiting and retaining a great faculty; maximizing research; increasing international engagement; supporting the health sciences and health care; and strengthening the university's efforts in engagement and economic development. McRobbie also reflected on the university's mission statement, approved by IU Trustees in 2005, and the vision that grew out of that statement: for IU to be one of the great research universities of the 21st century and the preeminent institution of higher education in Indiana.
