Strategic Plan for Lawrence & Edwards Campuses

Bold Aspirations is the strategic plan for 2012-17 for the University of Kansas. The plan is the template for a transformation of KU, and both guides and inspires us to keep striving to raise the expectations we have for ourselves, the aspirations we have for our state, and the hopes we have for our world. On this site, you will find complete information on our six strategic goals and the individual strategies being pursued to meet each goal.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Several initiatives are furthering efforts to ensure KU offers a welcoming and supportive environment for all to learn, live, work, and discover.
