This strategic plan outlines the goals and objectives for Kentucky's system of higher education from now until the turn of the century. Seven major goals are identified which address: 1) quality programs, (2) an educated citizenry, (3) equal opportunities, (4) economic development, (5) quality of life, (6) coordination, and (7) advocacy. For each goal the plan lists one to four objectives and for each objective it lists selected desired results. Examples of these objectives and desired outcomes include: for the goal of quality programs the objective of providing a global perspective and a desired result of producing graduates who are proficient in the global dimensions of their profession; for the goal of economic development the objective of assisting Kentucky companies and the desired result of providing institutional support for companies and entrepreneurial activities. Discussion also identifies the planning assumptions of the strategic plan. Four appendices contain a discussion of the planning process and of higher education clientele, a presentation of the vision statement for Kentucky, and a presentation of the mission statement framework, including the following topics: geographic region, institutional admission standards, degree levels, program priorities, enhancement of instruction, research and public service functions, collaborative ventures, and effectiveness.
