President Annual Report

  • This has been an incredible time for IUP.

    We came together as a community to create a shared vision for IUP’s future, crafted a strategic plan to achieve that vision, and then we rolled up our sleeves to work the plan. Annual Report Cover

    The administration and faculty union sat down together to streamline our processes for curricular improvement and for promotion review — and we received approval from the State System of Higher Education Board of Governors for three new academic majors, with a number of others in the pipeline.

    The University Budget Advisory Committee continues to engage in the heavy lifting of guiding us through very challenging financial times.

    An unprecedented number of this community stepped forward to participate in an honest, self-study process for our reaffirmation of accreditation by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education — a process that earned us not only reaffirmation of accreditation, but a commendation from the commission.

    Working together, in a collegial and respectful fashion, IUP is making a big impact on the world by educating leaders for today and tomorrow.

    It’s the IUP Way.
