Building Our Shared Future

Arkansas State is a university that embraced innovation in the past, and how we harness that energy for our future is the heart of the strategic planning initiative.

This is an exciting time in the history of Arkansas State University. We face challenges, but we also have incredible assets. The steering committee looks forward to working together with our campus community to build a vision of our shared future.

This inclusive, collaborative project was an opportunity to engage the university’s key stakeholders to discover and define how the university would leverage its opportunities and tackle its challenges for the next five years.
