IU Provost Lauren Robel will deliver the 2018 State of the Campus address at 3 p.m. Tuesday in Presidents Hall.

The provost will use her speech to update the campus on the IU Bicentennial Strategic Plan, an initiative announced in 2014 is intended to highlight student success, academic research and the University's commitment to diversity, among other areas, according to an IU release.

The eight-point plan features a focus on student success and the University's contribution to the world in terms of academics and economic development. 

Last year's remarks were interrupted by protesters advocating for a sanctuary campus. At the time, the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals policy was intact.

The Trump administration rescinded the program in September 2017 and gave Congress a March 5 deadline to provide a legislative replacement. Court rulings, including two so far in 2018, have since prevented this mandate from taking effect.   

The State of the Campus address is open to the public and will be livestreamed at
