Project Charter and Milestones

BUSINESS OBJECTIVES, JUSTIFICATION:

Kennesaw State University currently operates under the 2015-2016 Consolidated Strategic Plan, which was implemented during the consolidation of Kennesaw State University and Southern Polytechnic State University. KSU began development of a new 2017-2022 Strategic Plan in fall 2015; however, in May of 2016, Dr. Houston Davis became Interim President after the retirement of Dr. Daniel S. Papp.

Dr. Davis formed a new Strategic Thinking and Planning Committee and charged it to create a strategic plan to bridge the Consolidated Strategic Plan and the next five-year strategic plan that will be developed under the leadership of KSU's next president. The Bridge Strategic Plan will be finalized in spring 2017.
