Mission

EDUKAN will expand our quality and leading edge higher education courses for diverse populations of students seeking affordable, online programs at our consortium of community colleges, partner schools and globally.

Vision Statement

EDUKAN will be a leader in public higher education by providing students and consortia colleges an unparalleled opportunity for growth and cost- savings.

Our History

Beginning in the spring of 1998, six presidents of western Kansas community colleges met to evaluate an online means of offering courses to their student populations. From these early meetings, EDUKAN was formed. EDUKAN is not a separate institution, but instead a cooperative effort between member colleges to offer courses via the Internet beginning Fall 1999. Those who enroll in the online program will be able to take coursework that may lead to an associate degree from one of six participating institutions.

The institutions involved include: Barton Community College, in Great Bend; Colby Community College, in Colby; Dodge City Community College, in Dodge City; Garden City Community College, in Garden City; Pratt Community College, in Pratt; and Seward County Community College, in Liberal.
