56:23
Thank you for the update!

56:44
Thank you for the update, much appreciated!
Michael Szidloski II

There's a communication error, the solution source isn't being notified of the issues. That sound right Jerry?
Jerry Dragon
01:00:16
yes exactly.
Courtney
01:00:42
Excellent point
Jerry Dragon
01:01:10
it's a matter of the squeaky wheel getting the grease. and I don't believe that the decision makers in IT are getting how big of an issue this really is.
Derek Bastille
01:01:50
This, I think, is another example of UAF priorities getting diluted or downplayed as they float up to the SW level.
Jerry Dragon
01:02:28
for instance adding 1-800 dialing to Zoom may alleviate a lot of these issues but that is a cost and I think it needs to be communicated how much this would help and that the cost is valid.
Jerry Dragon
01:03:02
I don't know if it's UAF-SW I think it's more the message of rural campus voices getting lost in general.
Courtney
01:03:18
Thank you, Jerry, Scott and Derek
Rachel Potter (she/her)
01:03:22

J Queen
01:40:31
Thanks all, I need to jump off. Have a great rest of the meeting!
Michael Szidloski II (He/Him/His)
01:45:39
to greater explain our roles and responsibilities in a more concise manner
Michael Szidloski II (He/Him/His)
01:45:46
and what avenues we have available to affect changes
Scott Fronzuto (he/him)
01:46:23
we are the machinery that makes the Uni works.
Scott Fronzuto (he/him)
01:46:45
we should be allowed to be people, and not just be machinery
Michael Szidloski II (He/Him/His)
01:47:39
that was a discussion that point that was raised in the meeting, thanks Scott :)
Michael Szidloski II (He/Him/His)
01:49:33
Welcome Emily!
Scott Fronzuto (he/him)
01:50:25
that's good news, to have a student regent, hopefully soon!
Michael Szidloski II (He/Him/His)
01:51:27
ease in access of getting candidates, cool!
Emily Humphrey
01:54:33
I've got class soon, so I'm gonna hop out. Have a good one!
Scott Fronzuto (he/him)
01:54:48
Thanks for joining Emily!
Scott Fronzuto (he/him)
01:54:57
Sandra, I think that is great news.
Juella Sparks, UAF
01:55:19
Thanks for being here Emily!
Scott Fronzuto (he/him)
01:59:58
That is an interesting idea... to have actual Faculty (and Staff?) representation within BOR.
Scott Fronzuto (he/him)
02:00:35
as opposed to them only having the governance info updates.
Raina Collins
02:00:39
That would be phenomenal to have a seat on BOR just for staff and faculty

SB10 for reference
Derek Bastille
02:01:54
What is that bill?
Raina Collins
02:02:30
An Act establishing a grant program to provide to essential workers the tuition and fees to attend a state-supported postsecondary educational institution.
Derek Bastille
02:02:45
Oh, so like a tuition waiver for essential workers. Got it
Michael Szidloski II (He/Him/His)
02:02:49
Temporary College Assistance for Essential Employees
Michael Szidloski II (He/Him/His)
02:03:05

Michael Szidloski II (He/Him/His)
02:13:44
I haven't heard anything about the reorganization, either positive or negative
Courtney
02:15:08
Thank you, Tara. My connection is awful today
Scott Fronzuto (he/him)
02:17:28
that's great news Juella
Juella Sparks, UAF
02:19:25
Thank you Kari and Raina for taking on advocacy committee!
Scott Fronzuto (he/him)
02:19:27
yeah she is!
Michael Szidloski II (He/Him/His)
02:20:04
a chance to interconnect would be interesting. We could have Staff Play Among Us ;)
Michael Szidloski II (He/Him/His)
02:20:39
discuss issues while figuring out is the imposter lol :)

Kari
02:22:32
I have heard a little bit of Among Us and will have to look into it more.
Scott Fronzuto (he/him)
02:23:31
Raina, I'd be happy to help you figure out anything on the tech side.
Karina Gonzales-Smith
02:24:12
UAF faculty have different training/workshops/events calendars (e.g., eCampus, Accelerator). Maybe staff should have a similar calendar?
Kari
02:24:50
Good idea about the staff calendar for trainings/workshops/events
Kari
02:27:34
If anyone knows a good trivia app or online game, I have found a few but would love to know what games have worked for others. I am a Dungeon Master currently on Saturdays for a D&D group so I am used to running something while using 3 different softwares.
Raina Collins

Thanks Scott!
