Provide feedback on staff and faculty recognition; comments requested by Dec. 18, 2019

Dear Colleagues,

I am writing to ask for your feedback and ideas on the report from our Task Force on Staff and Faculty Recognition. I had planned to launch this in early fall but put the initiative on pause due to uncertainty regarding our structure.

Since the University of Alaska Board of Regents affirmed the three-university structure for the foreseeable future, I feel comfortable going forward.

This is an important initiative. Like all of you, I am interested in what we can do to improve morale and express appreciation to our faculty and staff even during this austere financial period. I want to thank task force members for their hard work in preparing this report.

Please note, due to budget restrictions, I may not be able to implement all good ideas right away. Any insight into priorities would be appreciated.

Please provide feedback to me by Dec. 18 by sending your comments to

Thank you, Cathy Sandeen UAA Chancellor
