WSU President John Bardo launched the strategic planning effort for Wichita State University in 2012, envisioning a dynamic, powerful future for WSU.
The planning effort is divided into three phases:
Phase I planning was completed in spring 2013. It was managed by a steering committee appointed by President Bardo and co-chaired by Cindy Claycomb, WSU professor of marketing and Ed O'Malley, president and CEO, Kansas Leadership Center. The committee engaged hundreds of people – from faculty, staff, students, business and community leaders and the general public – to generate ideas, gather data and make sense of the results.
The data from of the steering commitee, town hall meetings and strategic planning retreats has been distilled into a Strategic Planning Artifact report, available on the Strategic Planning Downloads page.
