In September 2010, the Kansas Board of Regents approved a 10-year strategic agenda for the state’s public higher education system. Entitled Foresight 2020, the plan sets long-range achievement goals that are measurable, reportable, and ensures the state’s higher education system meets Kansans’ expectations.

Three years of reporting are now available to review progess on Foresight 2020 goals and objectives.  A redesign of the overall strategic plan structure in 2012 reduced the overall number of strategic goals from six to three, but retains many of the original measures and offers refined or additional measurements of the higher education system.

The three strategic goals of Foresight 2020 are: 

  1. Increase Higher Education Attainment Among Kansans
  2. Improve Alignment of the State's Higher Education System with the Needs of the Economy
  3. Ensure State University Excellence
