Strategic Plans

    The Iowa Department of Cultural Affairs’ strategic plan integrates and unifies its programs and initiatives, and reinforces the role of arts, history and culture in ways that enhance quality of life and economic development in Iowa.

    The strategic plan guides the department’s activities in four key areas: responsible management of cultural resources, amplification of education and outreach, delivery of exemplary customer service and strengthening organizational effectiveness.

    The result maps the department’s future and aligns it with Governor Terry Branstad’s goals to create new jobs, increase family incomes, give Iowa students the best education, and reduce the cost of state government.
