2025: A Visionary Plan for Kansas State University

Our university strategic plan describes our institutional aspirations and goals for K-State in 2025. The result of an eighteen-month planning process involving hundreds of K-Staters, the plan builds off our collective history as a public land-grant institution, describes a clear vision for 2025 and identifies strategic directions to help us get there.

A university strategic plan is never done — it evolves as the university adapts to changing circumstances. Follow our progress as we move together to realize our future!

— President Kirk Schulz
