Open forums are vital for the staff, faculty and students at UAA to provide their input
Veronica Howard
49:19
Absolutely agreed. For faculty who are already feeling disenfranchised with everything that's been happening with the university for the past 5 years, an open forum would be critical to gain faculty acceptance.
Megan Ossiander-Gobeille
49:35
I agree with Rachel
Ryan Harrod
49:41
I agree as well
Emily Madsen
49:56
Agreed, Lorelei
Barbara Brown
52:11
I would be concerned that a short search without a search firm to do some of the heavy lifting would be result in a shallow pool of applicants for the position
Rachel Graham
53:37
I appreciate being able to contribute to the criteria and we understand there needs to be a quick turnaround
Sheri Denison
54:19
Yes, I completely agree. It’s extremely important given the degree of interims/changes in admin we have had.
Gökhan Karahan
59:01
agreed
Jackie Cason
59:15
Thanks for that Sharon.
Jackie Cason
01:00:12
Yes, makes sense for faculty to appoint one from their ranks.
Ryan Harrod
01:00:59
Thank you Sharon
Nelta Edwards
01:01:14
Ask people to nominate and then have faculty VOTE for community members
Gökhan Karahan
01:01:28
great idea Sharon
Gökhan Karahan
01:03:18
A national ad campaign would do it for the Interim position I think
Gökhan Karahan
01:04:00
rather than a search firm
pcfagan
01:07:52
Given the need to solicit candidates with a love and vested interest in the future of UAA and Alaska (as President Pitney has mentioned today), I hope that many qualified Alaska Native leaders apply.
Ryan Harrod
01:08:14
Yes I hope so too.
Veronica Howard
01:08:16
Agreed!!
Jackie Cason
01:08:43
Agree with you Patricia.
Gökhan Karahan
01:08:59
that remains to be my wish as well
Maria Williams
01:13:55
Thank you Ryan!!
Veronica Howard
01:14:47
LuAnn had comments
pcfagan
01:15:10
I support this resolution.
Ryan Harrod
01:15:57
Great point
Veronica Howard
01:16:38
In Open Forum(s) with the community
Veronica Howard
01:19:10
Is it just "FORA"?
Veronica Howard

Ryan Harrod
01:31:07
Thanks Veronica
Nelta Edwards
01:38:28
Can someone point out to him that this is not a business?
Rachel Graham
01:40:56
which "customers"?
Lorelei Sterling
01:44:03
Thank you Jackie, this is a great example
Veronica Howard
01:44:05
Amen, Jackie! And the shared services MUST include robust, self-service training materials that can be access and reaccessed easily.
Sharyl Toscano
01:44:40
I have had a good experience with SPOKE. It is like anything else. If you don’t get what your hoping for call again (or in this case put it back into spoke) and someone else responds who might be better at that particular question.
Emily Madsen
01:51:24
Thank you for this document! It benefits us all when there is collaboration and connection between Anchorage and Community Campuses.
Shawnalee Whitney
01:53:14
I'd just like to share that colleagues serving at all of the campuses across the MAU actively joined as participants in and served as peer mentors in both #Pivot and #Pivot 2 this summer. The presence of folks from all campuses enriches the conversations in programming related to faculty development and instructional support. I appreciate everyone who has participated and contributed.
Ryan Harrod
01:54:07
#Pivot was great and it was wonderful to interact with my colleagues at the community campuses
Veronica Howard
01:54:08
Absolutely agree, Shawnalee. The Pivot mentors from community campuses are excellent colleagues, and I wish we had closer relationships across our campuses.

When is the end of the comment period?
Veronica Howard
02:03:49
Thank you!
Ginger Blackmon (she/her/hers)
02:12:23
it is out already
Lorelei Sterling
02:21:14
I would love to see library resources/services be included if possible
Megan Ossiander-Gobeille
02:23:19
I don't know if we could get these numbers, but could we look at (1) number of students who hold other jobs and (2) the percentage of those who test into remedial/developmental math/writing classes
Barbara Brown
02:24:24
Number of first-generation college students?
smkalina
02:25:31
smkalina@alaska.edu
Rachel Graham
02:27:23
Yes, thank you! I have been telling my students that too.
Megan Ossiander-Gobeille
02:27:24
Either that or switch from RPNow…
Rachel Graham
02:27:50
If there's an alternate with the same functions I would like to know
Lorelei Sterling
02:27:55
Thanks Shawnalee!
Veronica Howard
02:28:13
@Megan @Rachel - we can look into that through ACDLITe
Megan Ossiander-Gobeille
02:29:31
Quantitative Studies has some classes that use Respondus. It is easier for students to use, but the review process is more on the shoulders of faculty.

Rachel Graham

thank you! I'll be super happy when we can go back to mass use of the testing centers and we appreciate you supporting us as we all do COVID times
Lorelei Sterling
02:32:53
thanks everyone!
