UAF professor proposes an alternative to Strategic Pathways

by Michelle Saport  |   

UAF neuroscience professor Abel Bult-Ito has proposed an alternative to Strategic Pathways. Professor Bult-Ito will present his plan on Wednesday, Nov. 2, at 5:30 p.m. at the UAA/APU Consortium Library, Room 307 (Lewis E. Haines Meeting Room).

In his New Vision for the University of Alaska, Professor Abel Bult-Ito (neurobiology and anatomy, Department of Biology and Wildlife, UAF) recommends that the University of Alaska refocus on its core mission of inspiring learning and disseminating knowledge through teaching, research and public service, emphasizing the North and its diverse peoples.

His proposal calls for streamlining of administrative functions at each of the MAUs (Anchorage, Fairbanks and Southeast) and drastically reducing the size of University of Alaska Statewide. The cost savings will then be reinvested in new faculty, teaching and research support staff, student services and student scholarships.

Unlike Strategic Pathways, New Vision offers projected costs, savings and revenues over the next 10 years. Bult-Ito projects that the restructuring of the university system will result in over $900 million in additional research and tuition revenues.
