Just the Facts — Sept. 30: Chancellor’s update on 9/26 NWCCU letter

Dear UAA Community,

Please take a moment to watch this Just the Facts video addressing questions about the letter sent by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities (NWCCU), our regional accreditor, dated Sept. 26, 2019. The letter identifies concerns regarding the appropriate division of authority and responsibility between the statewide office and UAA, UAF and UAS as separately accredited universities, and the need to demonstrate shared governance and inclusive processes in critical decisions.

The letter raised no concerns about the quality of UAA’s academic or research programs. UAA’s accreditation was reaffirmed by NWCCU in January 2019, marking 45 years of continuous institutional accreditation.

If you have additional questions, you can always reach out to me at uaa_feedback@alaska.edu.

Sincerely,
Cathy Sandeen
UAA Chancellor
