SIU is embarking on a remarkable transformation. Together, we are revitalizing academic programs, expanding knowledge creation, adding to the vitality of our communities, and – most importantly –reinforcing all we do to serve students through outstanding programs supported by experiential learning and a vibrant campus life.
Even as we evolve, we will remain true to our historical mission and character as an institution dedicated to building personal connections.
We welcome your feedback and support as we move forward with our ambitious agenda. This site includes an FAQ about our evolving Vision 2025 plan, starting with the restructuring of our academic programs. You’ll find a proposed plan (version 2, see other versions) regarding academic programs as well as a feedback form to share your thoughts and ask questions.
You will also find additional resources, such as a link to the 2017 State of the University address, an address on revitalizing academic programs and background about the Vision 2025 survey, with a report on the findings to come.
Everyone – faculty, staff, students, alumni, friends, community leaders and others – has a stake in the university’s future success. Thank you for your commitment to SIU.
