Strategic Plans

The new plan

Work is under way on Iowa State's next strategic plan, which will span fiscal years 2017 through 2022 (July 1, 2016-June 30, 2022). Watch the Strategic Plan Development site for news and updates.

The current plan

Iowa State's current five-year strategic planning, "Meeting the Challenges of the 21st Century," was extended into a sixth year in January. President Steven Leath delayed the start of the university planning process to:

  • coordinate with state Board of Regents and ISU Foundation and
  • move ISU's plan from the calendar year to fiscal year, which is a better fit with budget planning.
