2025: A Visionary Plan for Kansas State University

K-State 2025: Snapshots of Success

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 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 on this website as we move together from planning to realizing our future!

— President Kirk Schulz
