Mission, Vision, & Values
IU Southeast: Our Vision Statement
IU Southeast will become one of the nation’s leading student-centered, comprehensive regional universities.
IU Southeast: Our Mission
Indiana University Southeast is the regional campus of Indiana University that serves Southern Indiana and the Greater Louisville metropolitan area. As a public comprehensive university, its mission is to provide high-quality educational programs and services that promote student learning and prepare students for productive citizenship in a diverse society, and to contribute to the intellectual, cultural, and economic development of the region. Its academic programs include a comprehensive array of baccalaureate degrees and a selected set of master's programs. The campus is committed to offering educational programs and services which promote and support diversity in all its aspects. The faculty engage in research and creative activities which strengthen teaching and learning through inquiry into both the content and the pedagogy of the disciplines and create opportunities for students to engage in applied learning. Finally, members of the campus community are committed to using their professional and personal expertise to address the intellectual, cultural, and economic development needs of the campus's service region.
IU Southeast: Diversity Statement
Diversity is the valuing and respecting of difference, including socio-economic status, race, religion, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, veteran status, cultural and international origin, and other groups traditionally underrepresented at the university and in society. We grow and evolve as a university through seeing equality and representation as a goal and human right for everybody. Indiana University Southeast is committed to recruiting students from diverse populations and to making the climate and curriculum welcoming and equitable. Students will leave the university with a raised level of awareness of the history of equality and difference and attain international awareness, so that their understanding of academic disciplines, society, and the workplace will be enhanced, and they will be receptive to and promote valuing and respecting difference in their lives and in the workplace.
IU Southeast: Our Values
Core values are the authentic guiding principles that define who we are as a university and what we stand for as an institution. They are the timeless values about which we feel passionately – values we would continue to honor even if our circumstances changed in a way that penalized us for holding to them. Since core values define who we are as a university, they act as the foundation upon which we build our mission, vision, and strategic plan.
- Nurturing Environment
We foster a caring campus community that honors diversity, innovation, loyalty, teamwork, mutual respect, and fair play. We work together to create a culture of inclusion and dignity for all.
- Holistic Learning
We provide a rich educational environment of academic excellence that extends beyond the classroom and supports students in reaching their full potential. We seek ways to improve upon the quality and service we provide to students.
We are uncompromising in our commitment to doing the right thing and being direct in our dealings. We are good stewards of our resources and take that responsibility seriously, are conscientious in our decision-making, and practice ethical behavior in all we do.
We engage with and support the many communities to which we belong and from which we draw our strength and potential. We go to extraordinary lengths to serve our communities efficiently and knowledgeably.
These values will enliven discussion and inform our daily decision-making process. Our Core Values are placed with our Vision and Mission Statements to remind us of our common purpose and to tell others interested in our campus who we are and what we stand for. Please join us in openly embracing these values as an integral part of the IU Southeast community.
