Achieving Distinction 2000: A Strategic Plan for The University of Iowa

Achieving Distinction 2000, A Strategic Plan for The University of Iowa, 1996, reaffirms the Mission and Goals; adds Core Values, Indicators of Progress, and Strategic Focus Areas; and highlights recent progress toward institutional goals. The update of the Campus Planning Framework must act as an extension of the Strategic Plan and assist in meeting the Plan's Mission, achieving its Goals, and advancing the Core Values.

The statement on Mission was developed in 1987 from a University self-study committee preparing documentation for reaccreditation. The Mission has been revised in 1988-89, further modified by the Faculty Council and the University president and vice-presidents, approved by the Board of Regents in 1989, and reaffirmed by the 1994-95 Strategic Plan Committee. While the entire Mission guides this Framework Plan, portions of the Mission are particularly pertinent.

"The educational mission of the University requires an environment that promotes free inquiry and ethical behavior, which fosters the qualities of mind that lead to mature, independent, informed, and humane judgment. The creation and maintenance of a community of women and men that is multicultural, multiethnic, multiracial, multinational, and respectful of the dignity of all persons essential to this environment."

The Sesquicentennial Campus Planning Framework provides the link from the University Mission to the University physical environment. As the University strives to achieve its overall Mission, planning and development of the physical environment fosters development of qualities of mind, supports creation and maintenance of diverse community, and is respectful to human dignity. The planning framework not only flows from the Strategic Plan, it supports and implements it in terms of the physical environment.

Achieving Distinction 2000, A Strategic Plan for The University of Iowa, 1996, reaffirmed six University-wide goals developed in 1989-90 and added a goal emphasizing the University's commitment to research and scholarship. While the processes and outcomes of the Sesquicentennial Campus Planning Framework support Goals 1 through 6, achieving Goal 7 is specifically and directly linked to the physical environment of the campus.

Environment can be defined as the broad academic, intellectual environment and the physical setting, particularly the exterior environment, in which the University operates.
