Highland Faculty Member Appointed to State Council
Highland Community College criminal justice/psychology instructor Eric Ketchum has been appointed to the Kansas Board of Regents’ Transfer and Articulation Council (TAAC). TAAC’s mission is to create structures and processes that facilitate student transfer and degree completion within Kansas higher education, while assuring quality and adherence to the agreed-upon learning outcomes of system-wide courses.
TAAC is responsible for:
- Directing the Kansas Core Outcomes Groups with specific course articulations;
- Adjudicating any disagreement from the Kansas Core Outcomes Groups;
- Issuing final approval on the system-wide transfer of specific courses; and
- Assuring quality and adherence to agreed-upon learning outcomes of courses articulated across the institutions.
TAAC has overseen the approval of 66 courses for guaranteed transfer. A student who completes one of these courses at any Kansas public university, community college, or technical college can be certain that he or she can transfer it to any other Kansas public postsecondary institution offering the course. Ketchum’s involvement with TAAC will help the College maintain its position of being on the leading edge of providing course offerings that are readily transferrable.
