K-State 2025

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. The dialogue throughout this planning effort was as important as the final plan itself.

Realizing the vision of K-State 2025 requires an institutional commitment to planning and holding ourselves accountable at all levels. In September 2011, President Schulz announced an ambitious planning initiative to align College/Major Units and Departmental planning with the K-State 2025 visionary plan as well as to further define University metrics for reporting our progress.

Colleges and Major Units submitted completed Strategic Action and Alignment Plans in December 2012.
