Creating a Better Life

In 2016, KCTCS unveiled a strategic plan that establishes high-level goals and performance targets for the institution. To support that plan, we are creating a series of two-year action plans that identify specific strategies to reach those goals.

Each two-year action plan will identify actionable strategies to benefit all colleges and move the needle in a positive direction on strategic plan measures. The two-year planning cycle aligns with Kentucky’s state budget cycle and allows us to respond effectively to changing conditions.

The second phase of the six-year plan, Creating a Better Life focuses on:

  1. Expanding targeted outreach and support for adult learners to increase participation and success in postsecondary education.
  2. Increasing the efficiency and effectiveness of admissions and enrollment processes at KCTCS colleges.
  3. Developing guided career pathways that include immersive orientation, intrusive advising, block scheduling, and meta-majors.
  4. Leveraging financial aid processes and Starfish Retention Solutions capabilities to increase retention and completion.
  5. Increasing the number of KCTCS students who complete career-oriented certificates in targeted industry sectors and dual credit students who earn credits in these programs.
