President Markwood Head ShotThanks to the work of some very talented and engaged faculty and staff, this strategic plan helps create a foundation for greatness here at Columbus State University.

This plan – and the sentiments and actions behind it – will allow us to continue our emergence as a university that is nationally recognized for teaching, envied for its community partnerships, respected for its dedication to quality and lauded for its commitment to students.

I'm pleased to inherit the vision for Columbus State University to be a first-choice institution for discerning students. The pursuit of this vision will reverberate throughout campus and guide us toward excellence in all the varied areas the university touches.
