2.1 PURPOSE AND MISSION.
a. Aspiration. The University of Iowa aspires to attract the most talented faculty, staff, and students; to provide an environment where they can discover and fulfill their potential; and thereby to realize its promise, which is to become one of the ten most distinguished public universities in the country.
2.2 TAX INFORMATION.
2.3 ORGANIZATIONAL CHARTS AND MISSION STATEMENTS.
(The institution's aspiration originated with the University Self-Study Committee and was first iterated in Building on Strength, the 1987 report prepared for the University's re-accreditation by the North Central Association of Colleges and Universities. The Self-Study Committee ... "strongly reaffirmed" the commitment. In the 1995-2000, 2000-2005, and 2005-2010 strategic plans, the University has continued to express confidence in the motivational value of the University's bold and lofty Aspiration.)
c. Core Values. In planning, setting priorities, and carrying out every aspect of its mission, The University of Iowa is guided by seven interdependent commitments:
(1) To create a University experience that enriches the lives of undergraduates and helps them to become well-informed individuals, lifelong learners, engaged citizens, and productive employees and employers.
(2) To cultivate excellent graduate and professional programs, and to advance the research and scholarly enterprise.
(3) To promote excellence in education by increasing the diversity of the faculty, staff, and students.
(4) To strengthen the University's intellectual and community vitality.
(5) To broaden the University's service mission to include stronger partnerships with public constituencies.
The University of Iowa is a community of faculty, staff, students, alumni, and friends who seek to advance knowledge and foster learning across a broad range of academic endeavors. So that learning and creative expression may flourish, the University takes seriously its obligation to protect academic freedom and free expression; maintain a safe, supportive, healthy, and humane environment; and nourish a system of collaborative decision making based on mutual respect and shared governance. Because diversity, broadly defined, advances its mission of teaching, research, and service, the University is dedicated to an inclusive community in which people of different cultural, national, individual, and academic backgrounds encounter one another in a spirit of cooperation, openness, and shared appreciation.
(6) Respect, and
The University recognizes its accountability to the people of Iowa and the need to exercise responsible stewardship over the intellectual and material resources entrusted to it, including the need to direct those resources to programs and initiatives that are central to the University's core mission. In all that it does, the University measures itself by exacting standards, promotes continuous improvement, honors excellence and high aspiration, and holds its community as a whole to the highest degree of honesty, fairness, and personal integrity.
