Strategic Plan 2022-2026

Building Kentucky's talent pipeline

The Kentucky Community and Technical College System 2022-2026 Strategic Plan focuses on three core goals with associated objectives and performance measures that provide a roadmap for the next four years to better the lives of Kentuckians.
