FY2017-2022 Strategic Plan

Today’s world needs great universities like Iowa State. The world will feel much smaller in 2050, when 9.6 billion people are sharing the planet. Resources will be more precious and balancing the needs of humankind and the health of our planet will become increasingly difficult. At the same time, people will use technology in new ways, and cultures will be interconnected like never before. Iowa State presses forward on a mission to help make the world safe and sustainable for generations to come.
