What’s your vision?

Vision is…You. Representing your interests and taking actionable steps toward progress. Over the past few months, we have met with over 40 stakeholders on campus — groups of students and individuals with concerns and roles affected by policies at IU.

We have listened. We have developed actionable changes that you want to see and have incorporated them into our policy platform. But we are not done! We are still meeting with students to ensure we are actively advocating for the vision YOU have for Indiana University.

 

our policy areas make up the 8 focal points of vision
