An evaluation of KSU’s mission statement reveals that student success is a key element of the University’s mission.  As stated in this mission statement, “the University strives continually to enhance student success, improve institutional quality, and respond to public demand for higher education.”  Further evidence of the University’s focus on student success is its Strategic Priority One in KSU’s 2017-2018 Bridge Strategic Plan.  Through this strategic priority, KSU will “enhance learning and services that improve retention, progression, and graduation (RPG) rates.”

To that end, KSU annually identifies, analyzes, and publicly reports goals and outcomes for student achievement by using multiple measures to document student success.  These institutional measures and students’ achievement on these measures are presented below:
