Vision. Momentum. Impact.

There is no doubt the world waiting on the other side of this global crisis will be in greater need than ever before of the kind of bold actions and audacious innovations that are the hallmarks of this university.

Robert J. Jones, Chancellor

The Next 150, Strategic Plan 2018-2023, set an ambitious agenda for the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign to live up to its full potential of acting as a beacon of knowledge for our community, our state, our nation and our world. Through its guidance, we have advanced scholarship, provided life-changing educational experiences, served our society and stewarded resources while generating new investments. And that advancement continued despite dealing with the impacts of the COVID-19 global pandemic.

Boldly Illinois: Strategic Plan 2030 will build upon this success by keeping the same four goals and advancing into these areas to rethink the way the university delivers on its missions. We are currently in the planning stages of a collaborative and comprehensive process to create this plan. As Boldly Illinois: Strategic Plan 2030 is created, we will include opportunities for members of the campus community to give feedback. I encourage you to stay involved and offer your ideas.
