Fort Valley State University is developing its Strategic Plan 2020-2025 with the goal of solidifying a forward direction which will ensure the university’s international leadership, relevance, and value over the next five years, and lay the foundation for continued excellence as it enters its second 125 years of existence. Following a charge and directive from President Paul Jones, the planning effort is led by a steering committee with representatives from a diverse array of constituencies, including faculty, staff, alumni, and the community. With facilitation from the consulting firm MGT Consulting Group and input from key stakeholders, the committee plans to conclude its work in spring 2020.

The strategic plan will include:

  • Clarification of FVSU’s vision, mission, and values
  • An overview of FVSU’s challenges and opportunities
  • Goals, objectives, and strategies for the next five years
  • Identification of resources, systems, and infrastructure needed for implementation and measurement
