The 2016 - 2026 Strategic Framework

In 2015-16, University of Illinois President Timothy Killeen led an initiative to develop a system-wide strategic framework to chart the institution's path to the future and build on the U of I's rich legacy of service to students and to the public good. The development process was a team effort involving all of the U of I's stakeholders.

The resulting strategic framework was approved at the May 19, 2016 meeting of the U of I Board of Trustees. The framework calls for the U of I System to organize its world-class resources around four strategic pillars: 

I. An Institution of and for Our Students

II. Research and Scholarship with Global Impact

III. A Healthy Future for Illinois and the Midwest

IV. Tomorrow's University Today
