Strategic Plan

On August 24, 2004, a 34 member planning committee was charged to look critically at the Kansas Cooperative Extension Service. They were asked to focus on one question: "What will the Kansas Cooperative Service need to look like in the future to conduct relevant, sustainable, quality educational services and programming?"  The committee was asked to provide a series of strategic plan recommendations and suggest actions to implement the plan for each of the following four key themes:

  • Organizational Structure and Staffing
  • Resource Development
  • Educational and Information Development and Dissemination
  • Constituent Development and Marketing


On December 1, 2004, the planning committee provided the recommendations on the following pages to fulfill the extension mission of K-State Research and Extension.
