Kuali Coeus (KC) System Updates and FAQs

Since going live with the Proposal Development and Conflict of Interest modules in Kuali Coeus (KC) on April 24, 2017, we’ve encountered and learned a great deal.  We would like to share these things with campus with updates that will provide tips, instructions, bug fixes, training opportunities, system outages, etc. 

Training Videos

The SPA/OSP/CGA training videos communicate the wealth of information that can be accessed by research faculty and administrators on project financial and administrative activity. Video training is intended to supplement classroom training and other educational opportunities offered through our offices.
