THE STRATEGIC PLAN
Central to the National Agenda
The 2011-21 strategic plan has been the essential guide for the university in its second century and charts a path to becoming one of the nation’s premier public research institutions. It is broad and deep in its goals and initiatives and has taken the university to the next level – profoundly transforming the university as a national model for everything it does. Now, the university is taking the first steps to leap even further with strategic visioning for the next decade.
A National Leader
Georgia State is a national model for student success. We harness the power of data to help our students earn their degrees. We have had one of the most dramatic increases in graduation rates in the country and we have closed the achievement gap, affirming that students from all backgrounds can succeed at the same rate.
Discovery, Creativity & Scholarship
We pursue a dynamic vision built on the hard work, dedication and achievement of people who have propelled Georgia State to where it is today. Our research is broad and deep, addressing critical societal issues and pushing the boundaries of knowledge. Through exciting interdisciplinary initiatives and programs, we continue to rise to national prominence, bringing in scholars from around the world to open new pathways of discovery and creativity.
A Leading Research University
Georgia State is one of the nation’s premier urban public research universities, solving global challenges in human health. Researchers at Georgia State use the university’s state-of-the art facilities and work across disciplines to address critical quality of life issues, such as cancer, obesity, inflammation, vaccines, child and adult literacy, and public health issues related to smoking, among others.
DIVERSITY, EQUITY & INCLUSION
On the Forefront
The university’s Strategic Plan sets forth a course of action that advances the university into the ranks of great public research universities. In one of the most diverse metropolitan regions of the United States, the institution must become a leader in leveraging every aspect of campus diversity among our constituent groups of faculty, students and staff.
