The field of state authorization is an ever-changing landscape, leaving us with a number of questions and uncertainties. We can sum up the field in two words: It Depends. At times, there are a number of changes and modifications happening at a rapid pace, leaving us struggling to catch up.

Enter MoKanSan.

MoKanSan is the Missouri-Kansas State Authorization Network. It was created to provide networking, collaborative, and informational opportunities for regional institutions. However, membership to MoKanSan is not limited strictly to members residing in Missouri and Kansas; anyone can join.

Modeled after WCET’s State Authorization Network, but on a more direct level, MoKanSan will disseminate important information to its members regarding the latest news and updates in the realm of state authorization in distance education. It will be a place for members to not only hear the latest regarding state authorization, but will also provide a venue to both offer and receive advice, and providing support to fellow institutions.

MoKanSan will host a second MoKanSan State Authorization Summit in January 2018. Stay tuned for details!

Suggestions and guest writers are welcome. Let’s create this group together.
