  • Follow up discussion: criteria for awarding 'Emeritus/Emerita' status to retired administrators 
    • Benefits of being emeritus/emerita status
      • Allowed to maintain an office, if space is available, may access library, etc.
      • Can represent the University at official events; inaugural ceremonies, regional & local events/meetings. Could be called upon by the University to do so.
    • Deans Council members have agreed to take over the process of awarding an administrator 'Emeritus/Emerita' status going forward whenever anyone is nominated by faculty/staff or community member. 
    • Google Drive created and shared by Kelsey
  • Follow up discussion: JBER courses & advertising for Spring
    • We are moving forward with some advertising on the base trying to align with the general student campaign.
    • A Digital advertisement will be created to show all on advertising screens throughout the base.
    • Flyers with all courses listed will be created once the official schedule for the Spring semester has been finalized.
    • Big signs will also be put outside of the offices at Elmendorf.
    • There will be an Open House the week of Veterans day at both centers - look out for more information on that soon.
    • Tours of both centers are welcome to any department that wants to come on base and to connect.
  • GER Committee 
    • Let the Provost know of any individuals on the administrative side of UAA who are able to serve:  must be open to rethinking the way we do sharing and scheduling of the online sections of GER’s.
  • UAA 2025 
    • Messaging will come out from the Chancellor soon on UAA 2025. Where you have strategic plans, everything that you’re doing that already feeds into UAA 2025, please keep doing that.

    • Overview of the form is; how each program is doing, and what they can continue to do to improve student success at the program level.

    • Please pay extra attention to the students who are in teach out’s currently. Make sure outreach is going directly to each student. 
    • Moving forward after expedited program review as a University we will be revising the teach-out process going forward, and how we change this due to our prior experiences over the last couple years.
