Dear University Community, 

I would like to take this opportunity to share the recently released Illinois Board of Higher Education's Strategic Plan. 

From the IBHE: "Higher education has always been a path to a better future, for individuals, communities, and the entire state of Illinois. The challenge of the next decade is to focus on creating broad paths to a prosperous future for every learner, leader, and community that we engage. We can do this with a commitment to a higher education ecosystem that reinforces equity, sustainability, and growth. That's the vision of a thriving Illinois."

We look forward to continuing to work alongside the IBHE and other state partners to ensure that Illinois public higher education continues to prosper and succeed. 

Thank you for doing your part. 

Guiyou Huang, Ph.D.
Western Illinois University
