Student Affairs strives to engage the KU community in services and programs that make learning possible. In the fall of 2016, a comprehensive strategic planning process was launched. It was designed to focus our efforts on providing a KU student experience in which every student is supported by the campus environment, connected to the institution, and prepared for the challenges of today and tomorrow. Further, the process was designed to identify ways to reaffirm our commitment to the growth and development of Student Affairs staff at all levels.
The 2017 – 2020 Student Affairs Strategic Plan (pdf) represents the culmination of this effort, and its contents will serve as our framework in the coming years. The 2017 – 2020 Student Affairs Strategic Plan presents our individual strategic goals and supporting objectives. Metrics have been developed to help us track and measure our progress. With clear goals and objectives, the new plan ensures all Student Affairs departments are working together to create and provide programs and services that meet the needs of students, staff, and other stakeholders.
