Admin Services Open Forums

Vice Chancellor Pat Pitney and the administrative services directors host open forums every 8-10 weeks, during the fall and spring semesters. Forums typically alternate locations between core campus and West Ridge and are available to staff at rural campuses and remote sites via a live webstream. Agenda items are posted approximately two weeks before the next forum.

These forums are open to all staff.  Deans, directors, department heads, fiscal managers and grant awardees are encouraged to attend.

For more information or to suggest a topic for an upcoming forum, contact Kerynn Fisher at x7907 or klfisher@alaska.edu.
