The Keene State College 2023-2026 Strategic Plan was developed over all of 2022, building on an extended period of candid reflection prior to our successful decennial reaffirmation of accreditation by New England Commission of Higher Education (NECHE) in 2021. The Strategic Planning Committee and Pillar Teams were made up of more than 65 students, faculty, and staff, who led dozens of listening sessions, forums, and periods of open conversation. Our Keene State College community engaged deeply in the Plan’s review and ultimate endorsement by the Student Assembly, College Senate, and President’s Cabinet.
As New Hampshire’s public liberal arts college, we recognize the value of educating leaders for tomorrow. This Plan, both ambitious and grounded, relies on rigorous accountability and metrics. Through this Plan and the steadfast commitment of the students, faculty, staff, alumni, and friends of Keene State College, we continue delivering on our promise to our students: Enter to Learn, Go Forth to Serve.
