The Future in Focus

We are pleased to present our newest strategic plan, The Future in Focus: KCTCS Strategic Plan 2016–2022.

The Future in Focus emerged from a collaborative process that included statewide conversations with students, employees, educators, legislators, business owners, community leaders, and more.

The process generated a rich array of data that not only shaped our strategic plan, but also is sparking conversations about the future of Kentucky with public and private partners across the state.

The new plan calls for us to focus on several core goals:

  • Raise the level of educational attainment in the Commonwealth by positioning KCTCS as the accessible, affordable, and relevant postsecondary education choice for Kentuckians

  • Increase access and success for all KCTCS students, particularly among traditionally underserved populations

  • Develop clear pathways through all levels of postsecondary education with an emphasis on experiential learning that lead to successful employment outcomes for KCTC graduates

  • Improve student engagement, support, experiences, and success with best-in-class academics and student services

  • Align programs and curricula with needs of employers that enhance the employability, job replacement, and career development of KCTCS graduates

To support the strategic plan, we are developing a series of two-year business plans to allow us to respond to changing conditions while maintaining focus on our long-term targets.
