Pitt State formally launched the start of its new strategic planning process with the creation of a special 20-member task force. This task force represents a broad cross-section of campus, reflecting the diversity of interests and perspectives that a university inherently includes.

The plan is the end result of more than 12 months of expanded campus and community conversations, intense data collection, and strategic priority sessions. It is ambitious, entrepreneurial, and quantifiable. It declares our values as an institution and our vision for the future.

By Doing Learn

Perpetuate the university’s founding principal of “By doing learn” through the creation of academic programs and opportunities that engage students in real world activities.

Diversity

Foster a diverse and international campus culture among students, faculty, and staff that supports an understanding and acceptance of a variety of ideas, beliefs, and cultures, thereby creating opportunity for all.

Community

Enhance the university’s strong relationship with the region and the Pittsburg community by maintaining a welcoming campus and creating big university opportunities in a small campus atmosphere.

Innovation

Sustainability

Recognize there are limited and finite resources in the world and, therefore, commit ourselves to establishing best practices to conserve resources as well as decrease the university's carbon footprint.
