We are pleased to share with you the 1997-98 annual report of the Illinois Mathematics and Science Academy. In this, we report some highlights of IMSA's 12th year, including highlights of our residential educational program for IMSA students and our statewide service programs for Illinois teachers, other students, and policymakers.

In 1997-98 we began implementing IMSA's visionary Second Decade Growth Plan which the Board endorsed in the Spring of 1997. The Growth Plan was designed to strengthen our capacity to: realize our mission, achieve our objectives, and fulfill our legislative charge; connect, integrate and leverage teaching and learning, research and service work more effectively; attract and secure additional resources for strategic priorities; and ensure IMSA's viability and sustainability in a rapidly changing and increasingly competitive environment.
