flowchart of the processThe 2015 Strategic Plan Process

University of Illinois President Timothy Killeen is leading the 2015 University-wide strategic planning initiative, a process that will 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.

Killeen has called the strategic plan a roadmap for the University's future. He expects the plan to touch every aspect of the institution's operations -- from enrollment, curricula and pedagogy to economic development and partnerships. The plan will be "rooted in evidence and guided by experience." The planning process is a team effort involving all of the U of I's stakeholders.

Killeen was directed by the University of Illinois trustees in March 2015 to begin the strategic planning process, which is expected to take 12-18 months.
