Strategic Planning

Science Center

A well-designed and implemented strategic planning process empowers an institution to establish priorities in alignment with its mission and develop strategies for advancing that mission. More important, effective strategic planning provides a campus community the opportunity to reach consensus on the institution’s future direction through campus-wide conversations.

This website is intended to provide transparency to the strategic planning process and a common space for participation by the members of the Keene State College community. We encourage you to visit this page often and to actively engage in a dialog that advances the process.
