Strategic Planning at NEIU

In 2008 the public discourse in America has focused on the idea of change. Many leaders have called for change, though there are many conflicting notions of what changes are needed in our country. It is clear, however, that comprehensive urban universities will be called upon to provide higher education to an increasingly large and diverse population of students.

As the needs of students in our region change, Northeastern Illinois University must respond by rethinking our curriculum, our programs, and even our institutional culture. We need to deliver educational services to students with new goals and new professional paths. To do this, we need to plan to use our intellectual and material resources creatively and effectively. The Strategic Plan presented here outlines goals and actions that define our efforts to make these changes.
