Kansas Core Outcomes Groups Conference

Each year faculty from all 32 institutions participate in the Kansas Core Outcomes Groups Conference (KCOG) to articulate core outcomes for specified courses recommended for Systemwide Transfer (SWT).

The 2021 KCOG Conference will be held VIRTUALLY on October 8, 2021 hosted by Wichita State University. For KCOG registration, please visit www.wichita.edu/kcog. The deadline to register is September 17, 2021.

To prepare for this conference, attending faculty should be familiar with the course outcomes for the specified courses. Appointed faculty will articulate and vote on student outcomes for each course recommended by the Transfer and Articulation Council (TAAC). All institutions are encouraged to send faculty even if they do not currently offer a new or review course.  Attending the KCOG assists with developing new courses and streamlines the process for adding SWT courses not previously offered. Additional information about the work and duties of faculty at KCOGs is available in the Overview of Transfer and Articulation Council and Kanas Core Outcomes Groups.
