Phase 5: Wordles

Wordles are word clouds that visually represent a group's thinking. Theme committee members were each asked at the beginning of the planning process for three words that described their vision of excellence for K-State in 2025 in their theme area. They were asked again for three words at the end of their work. The wordles below represent the words of all 84 committee members and the transformation that occurred in their thinking as a whole while working through the planning process.
