University System of Georgia Strategic Plan
Strategic Goal Two:
Create enrollment capacity to meet the needs of 100,000 additional students by 2020.
In order to meet the needs of a growing Georgia, the USG will need to expand its capacity by up to 40% to serve an additional 100,000 students by 2020. This is a unique opportunity to shape the USG for the new century, focusing on planned, targeted growth, the optimal use of facilities and other resources, and the proper alignment of resources with programmatic needs.
As a result of its strategic actions, the University System will increase capacity to accommodate targeted, programmatic growth.
Objectives of this goal include increasing the diversity of the USG's enrollment and closing enrollment gaps for under-represented groups; increasing the USG's public relations outreach; increasing the use of access institutions to meet higher education needs in under-served areas; creating a more robust sector of comprehensive universities and further delineating their missions within the sector; increasing the joint use of facilities; and positioning the USG among leading systems in distance education.
