Kansas Core Outcomes Group Conference

Each year faculty from all 32 institutions are invited to participate in the Kansas Core Outcomes Group Conference (KCOG) to articulate core outcomes for courses to be recommended for systemwide transfer.

The 2017 KCOG Conference will be held October 13, 2017, at Washburn University.

The 2018 KCOG Conference information will be updated in November 2017.

To prepare for this conference, attending faculty should:

  • Be familiar with the course, its syllabus, and the course number and title used by the institution.
  • Be empowered to write student outcomes and represent the vote of the institution for each course articulated for systemwide transfer.  

In order to keep the number of faculty attending the annual conferences to a manageable number, disciplines will be asked to meet for reviewing courses every other year or as needed.  

Attending faculty Register here by October 6, 2017.
