Message From The Dean

John Petraitis

After 20 years as a faculty member in UAA’s Psychology Department and another six as CAS’s Associate Dean for Social Sciences, I am honored to serve as Interim Dean of CAS.  Not only is CAS my professional home, my son earned a BA degree from two CAS disciplines and my daughter is working on a CAS degree now.  As a faculty member I always cared about the experiences our students receive, and as a CAS parent I cared in an entirely different way.  I take seriously the quality of the experience you receive in CAS and for which your friends and family are invested.  I hope you find faculty and staff who are devoted to your success at UAA.
