Strategic Plan: 2012–2015

In an effort to plan for the future of athletics at Pittsburg State University, a strategic plan was created to reinforce the vision and the future of Pittsburg State Athletics. The strategic plan highlights four goals:

  1. Student-Athlete Experience,
  2. Culture of Integrity and Stewardship,
  3. Athletic Excellence, &
  4. Advancement and Engagement.

The plan highlights several objectives and performance measures within each goal to support the direction of Pittsburg State Athletics. The plan embodies the vision of Pittsburg State Athletics in which the department will cultivate progressive, productive, and responsible sports programs while pursuing the pinnacle of excellence in learning, engagement and competition.

The execution of the Pittsburg State Athletics strategic plan will require full effort by all involved and support from all Pitt State Athletic Fund members and fans.
