2017-2022 Strategic Plan

Meeting Our Goals


overall status

The Kennesaw State University Library System works hard towards the goals outlined in the Strategic Plan from 2017-2022.

As of the end of 2019, about halfway through the timeframe of the Strategic Plan, the Library System as a whole has completed 53% of the actions towards the goals.

32% of these actions are considered still in progress and would likely continue into a new Strategic Plan. Meanwhile 15% of the items are no longer relevant due to budget barriers and changing visions of the University as a whole.
