Message from the President
Kent State University is in the midst of a magnificent journey, powered by a vision that our collaborative community created together. That vision, A Strategic Roadmap to a Distinctive Kent State, unfolds for you here through stories, images and data snapshots that illuminate our priorities and many of the achievements to date.
As you will see, this community has aspirations to take the university to levels of distinction never before realized. The Strategic Roadmap is designed to get us there.
Through the leadership of a 13-member Strategic Visioning Advisory Committee, the Strategic Roadmap is comprised of five priorities and 16 University-Level Initiatives (ULIs), all that map to the university’s compelling mission, vision, and values. It also includes performance metrics to measure progress and a University Dashboard complete with six-year goals and both peer and aspirational institution comparative data.
With our Strategic Roadmap in hand and a dashboard as our compass to keep us pointed in our chosen direction, it is assured that we will reach our destination –a Distinctive Kent State.
With best regards,
Beverly Warren, President
