Delivering on the 2012-17 Strategic Plan. . . 

This year has been the first year of implementation of our new 2012-17 Strategic Plan, entitled; EDUCATION REDEFINED 2.0: Advancing Indiana. As in the case of our previous strategic plan, our college is very well aligned with the objectives of the new plan and we are already delivering substantially in many of its measures. Therefore, the structure of our college annual report follows the same structure of objectives and measures of the university strategic plan and by doing so provides clear evidence of our distinctive alignment and active contributions.

Our college has a well-documented track record in providing distinctive educational experiences, leading disciplinary innovation, investing in a vibrant school community, and engaging the needs of Indiana. In this report you will be able to read about many of the unique features of our departments and programs. Our recent reaccreditation visits in the departments of architecture and urban planning acknowledge our professional relevancy and many measures that we meet with distinction. Also our programs in the department of landscape architecture have been repeatedly commended for their distinctive focus in design. This New Year will find all the professional programs of the college fully reaccredited and ready to move forward in their continuing quest to innovate and redefine education in each of their fields.

The CAP Family is a vibrant community that goes beyond our current students, faculty, and staff. Every year our Alumni elevate their engagement in the life of our college, and with their active participation our national recognition and influence continues to grow. We are a closely knitted community that is always ready to celebrate the many accolades that our members receive. In this report you will learn about the many recognitions that the CAP Family has received during this last year.

Last but certainly not least; this report celebrates the many ways in which the CAP Family is engaging the needs of Indiana. Community outreach has been a vocation of our college since its inception almost 50 years ago. Today we continue to profess that same commitment as one of our most distinctive features. We don’t only strive to do well, we strive to do good. The generous spirit of our alumni finds root in our college and current students continue to be inspired by the enduring dedication of our faculty.

We hope you will enjoy reviewing this report and share in our enthusiasm. These are exciting times for The CAP Family.
