The Wichita State University strategic plan establishes big audacious goals for Wichita State University based on a new vision, mission, and values. The plan is a strategic management tool to assist everyone at the university in administration, academic programs, student services, support services, and other operational departments to evaluate initiatives and allocate resources to reach the university’s goals.
The ultimate purpose of this strategic plan is to keep university members working toward the lofty vision and big audacious goals that the Wichita State University Strategic Planning Steering Committee identified as important for the transformation of Wichita State University. The Steering Committee’s work is based on data gathered from meetings with Wichita State University faculty, staff, and students, the Wichita State University Alumni Association members, and the larger community of the city of Wichita and the state of Kansas.
It took phenomenal integration of a body of work to create this plan. Hence, it is essential that it be viewed in its entirety rather than dissected into pieces.
