K-State Olathe Planning

In February 2010, Kansas State University launched an ambitious planning initiative with the visionary goal to be recognized as a Top 50 Public Research University by 2025. Building on our collective history as a public land-grant institution, we embarked on a planning process that was inclusive and exciting. With broad involvement, K-Staters worked together to craft our future. 

Realizing the vision of K-State 2025 requires an institutional commitment to planning and holding ourselves accountable at all levels. During Fall 2011, Colleges and Major Units began aligning their strategic planning with the K-State 2025 visionary plan.

During the Spring Semester 2012, a campus-wide K-State 2025 Olathe Planning Committee produced the first K-State Olathe strategic plan — a broad, directional action plan with an overall goal; assumptions; outcomes for the next five, ten, and fifteen years; and suggested activities aligned with the university visionary plan. K-State Olathe continues to evolve. Great strides have been made at the Olathe campus in its first phase of development. As we move into our next phase of growth for K-State Olathe and advancing the K-State 2025 vision, see the updated K-State Olathe - Strategic Action and Alignment Plan.
