A Message from President Benson

As our 2011-2015 Strategic Plan is nearing the end of its utility, it has sparked the formation of an EKU Strategic Planning Steering Committee to begin the process of creating a visionary five-year strategic plan to help guide Eastern’s course to 2020. Our new strategic plan will be a bold, forward thinking strategy focusing on academic and institutional excellence, student success, and service to our community and region.

The Steering Committee will conduct its work by honoring shared governance principles, all the while being aggressive and bold as to what we aspire. Specifically, the committee will seek ideas and guidance in establishing a vision, mission, values, goals, strategic initiatives, and key performance indicators. We will work within the EKU organizational structure to recognize the voice of every student, faculty, and staff member, as well as other EKU stakeholders. I have charged this committee to build a plan that is inclusive, equitable, and diverse, as these priorities are vital to our future’s success.

Thank you
Michael Benson
President, Eastern Kentucky University
