This morning, our Facilities and Campus Services team was made aware of a pothole that shut down the westbound lanes of Northern Lights Boulevard between UAA Drive and Career Center Drive. It has since been upgraded to a sinkhole, and the lanes will remain closed for an undetermined amount of time while crews repair the damage. We anticipate the closure will extend through the week.
Finals week is a very stressful time for students. Students, please know that your professors have been made aware of the situation. Please communicate with them any delays you may experience due to this issue. We know this is an unexpected traffic challenge. Please take a deep breath. We want you to have a smooth and safe finals week.
What Governance Does
The University of Alaska's governance system provides a forum and mechanism whereby faculty, staff, and students may present issues and positions for discussion throughout the university system; whereby they may seek mutual support, may speak with a common voice and may act together on issues affecting the general welfare of the university system community as a whole. The governance system is established by the University of Alaska Board of Regents Policy 03.01.01. Voting members are elected to unified constituent groups by their peers. UAA's Faculty Senate, Staff Council, and Union of Students constituent groups provide voting representation to the University Assembly. Representative groups provide representation to the system wide governance bodies. Alumni Association also exist at the three universities.
UAA Governance (made up of faculty, staff, and student constituent groups):
- Officially represents the university in community matters which affect the University's general welfare and its educational purposes and effectiveness;
- Serves as an advisory, coordinating and legislative body having as a primary function the making of recommendations regarding policy and regulation;
- Provides consulting services to the UAA Chancellor, Provost and Vice Chancellors, System Governance Council, President, and Board of Regents; and serves as an instrument by which information of interest and concern may be freely collected, shared, and discussed by the university community.
