PAIR Director Search

Candidates’ Public Forums

The PAIR (Planning, Analysis, Institutional and Research) Director search committee would like to invite the UAF community to the public forum presentations given by our PAIR Director candidates. We hope that you will take part in the PAIR Director search process by asking questions, viewing the presentations and providing us with your feedback about each candidate's potential to be the Director for PAIR. We welcome your feedback by filling in the anonymous survey link provided. The public forum presentations will be recorded and the link to access that recording will be available at the Provost's website. 

We realize that the timeline is short and we welcome any feedback you provide. The anonymous feedback will be considered by the search committee. Thank you in advance for taking the time to participate.
