This strategic plan establishes a 10-year blueprint for our university. An R1 research university with an access mission, Georgia State University spans the metro Atlanta region and beyond. Joining cities, suburbs and rural areas experiencing rapid growth, our university brings together diverse people, populations and communities to promote individual development, social transformation and workforce preparedness.
Georgia State University is a unique institution. We are the place for all, from high school students pursuing dual-enrollment opportunities to doctoral candidates creating new knowledge. Georgia State’s breadth makes it the place for students to achieve their academic and career goals, whether they are beginning a path in higher education, seeking new skills to enhance career opportunities or developing new passions as retirees. Our faculty and staff are committed to excellence in teaching, research and service. We advance knowledge and educate Panthers no matter where they are in their academic journeys. At Georgia State University, everyone is welcome, and anyone can succeed!
Ten years from now, Georgia State’s cutting-edge research and scholarship will enhance our state’s competitiveness and help our citizens build a better world. Our creative activities will open pathways of imagination and emotion, enabling us to understand ourselves and our communities in a bold fashion. Georgia State staff and faculty will experience professional satisfaction, security and recognition. Georgia State students will learn in the classroom, in their communities, throughout the country and across the globe. Alongside their instructors, they will develop a broad knowledge of the world, mastery of specialized disciplines and learn the skills necessary for citizenship, leadership, career and craft. Graduates of Georgia State will be positioned for flexibility and choice and will be prepared to make an impact on the economic and social character of our state, our nation and beyond. The growing value of a Georgia State degree is measured by our graduates’ success and earnings in their chosen careers, and also by their experience as part of a highly diverse university.
