The University of Southern Indiana (USI) Board of Trustees on Thursday approved a new University strategic plan for 2021-2015.

As part of the University's new plan, the Board of Trustees says it adopted updated vision and mission statements and a set of core values to use in shaping the direction and decisions made by the University in the years to come.

The plan, called "Accelerating Impact: USI's Strategic Plan 2021-2025," was developed with four goals in mind: improving student success, fostering impactful engagement, elevating visibility and reputation, and strengthening financial viability.

“Accelerating Impact is a roadmap that will help USI advance toward its vision: to be a recognized leader in higher education, boldly shaping the future and transforming the lives of our students through exceptional learning and intentional innovation,” said USI President Dr. Ronald Rochon.

The plan was developed by a committee co-chaired by Dr. Mohammed Khayum, Provost, and Steve Bridges, Vice President for Finance and Administration, and followed a period of review and research, incorporating feedback from more than 2,600 USI students, employees, retirees, alumni, and friends of the University.

This is the University's third strategic plan.

The cold front has come and gone and with it our threat for Severe Weather. However, scattered showers and thunderstorms will continue to affect portions of the Tri-State through the remainder of the evening ahead. In fact, there is a possibility that some of the thunderstorms we see between now and 9PM or so could produce small hail and wind gusts in excess of 40 mph. Anyone planning on attending a football game this evening should make sure an umbrella or poncho is on hand to keep you dry and should anticipate at least some rain delays to occur. The rain should finally exit east of the Tri-State between 10PM and 12AM; it's around that time that wind speeds will again pick up some steam - our northwesterly winds are expected to gust as high as 35 mph at times overnight.
