This strategic plan contends that The University of Iowa should strive to become one of the best public universities in the nation and develop more areas of national leadership. Such an aspiration implies a strong and vigorous emphasis on quality; the focusing of effort, time, and funds; an attitude of receptivity to change; and an aggressive effort to obtain new private and public funds. The pathway to distinction charted by this plan emphasizes the importance of building on the strengths of The University of Iowa as a major research university which is dedicated to educational and service programs of exceptional quality. Successful progress toward achieving the University's aspiration depends on the support of the University community, external constituencies, and the citizens of Iowa.
