Strategic Initiatives

Next Generation 2.0 Program In keeping with the IUPUI Strategic Plan and goals to retain and develop a diverse pool of talent to lead the institution into the future, a leadership development initiative, Next Generation 2.0, was announced in January 2015. IUPUI Next Generation 2.0 is an intensive nine-month leadership development program designed to prepare faculty and professional staff who are women and/or members of underrepresented populations for positions of leadership and opportunities for advancement at IUPUI and in higher education.

Leadership: Kathy Grove, Karen Bravo, Gina Sanchez Gibau

IU eText Initiative: IU eTexts are more than digital copies of traditional textbooks. They are tools that help reduce the cost of education while enhancing student learning both in and outside the classroom.

IUPUI Pre-Proposal Review Process for New Degrees and New Free-Standing Certificates: IUPUI is a diverse, large, and growing campus. It is important that new degrees and free-standing certificates serve the mission and goals of the proposing school while not causing harm to other schools. Degrees should, therefore, serve the mission and strategic goals of the campus as a whole. Further, given enhanced scrutiny by state entities, it is also important that new programs are sustainable financially. Effective July 1, 2017, a pre-proposal application is to be submitted before approval to move forward with a full proposal.
