K-State's new membership is helping distance education students
Thursday, February 12, 2015
Kansas State University recently became a member of the National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements, or SARA.
SARA is a national initiative that works to make distance education courses more accessible to students across state lines. It also works to make it easier for states to regulate and institutions to participate in interstate distance education.
"Kansas State University is one of the first Kansas institutions to become a SARA member," said Sue Maes, dean of Kansas State University's Global Campus. "As online programs continue to proliferate across the nation, it is important to have a system in place that ensures institutional quality, consumer protection and institutional financial responsibility. K-State's acceptance as a SARA member assures the consumer that our online offerings are of the highest quality."Source: Sue Maes, 785-532-3110, firstname.lastname@example.org
