For the last 10 years, I’ve served as the director of the Justice Center in the College of Health at the University of Alaska Anchorage (UAA). I’ve been privileged to work with outstanding faculty and staff and dedicated tribal, local, state, and federal partners. Together, we’ve overcome significant challenges to successfully grow academic and research programs that are leading Alaska to a safer, healthier, and more just society. I’ve been blessed to have your support and I hope that you are as proud of the Justice Center as I am. Serving as the Center’s director and working with our community partners has been the greatest honor of my professional career.
It is bittersweet as I transition to my new role in the College of Health as associate dean for academic and student affairs. I look forward to working with Jeff Jessee, the newly appointed dean of the College of Health and vice provost of health programs, and the many opportunities we will have to advance the health and well being of people and communities. I will continue to support the Justice Center’s academic programs and research activities. I remain a passionate advocate for the university’s role in promoting the complete physical, mental, and social well being of all Alaskans.
Although my responsibilities are changing, your support for the outstanding work of faculty, staff and students in the Justice Center and throughout the College of Health remains critical. I am deeply honored and extremely grateful for the opportunities you’ve provided and humbly ask that you continue to support the work we are doing to make Alaska a healthier and more just society. Thank you very much.
