Academic Affairs Strategic Plan
"Our Voices, Our Vision, Our Actions" is the strategic plan of the Division of Academic Affairs at Kent State University. The plan is driven by two bedrocks of meaningful participation: first, the opinions of faculty, students and staff expressed by means of our online Civic Commons website and supplemented by a series of face-to-face roundtables; and second, the strategic plans developed in our academic colleges and on our regional campuses over the past three years. These unit plans themselves grew from interactions among their own faculty, staff and students. Given our Responsibility Center Management (RCM) budget model, such local unit interactions form the real backbone for strategic academic decision making and planning at Kent State University. Using the university's six strategic directions as a framework, "Our Voices, Our Vision, Our Actions" provides a clear statement of who we are and what we value in the Division of Academic Affairs at Kent State University.
