July 2014 Update

The first UA Budget meeting with the UA Administration will take place on 31 July 2014 at 9-11am.

Professor Anthony Rickard, Mathematics Education at UAF, and Associate Professor Soren Orley, Accounting at UAA, have agreed to join United Academics President Abel Bult-Ito to discuss these budget issues with the administration’s group.

The UA administration will be represented by Dr. Ashok Roy, UA Vice President of Finance/CFO, Myron Dosch, UA Controller, and Donald Smith, UA Executive Director of Labor and Employee Relations.

United Academics members will be able to call in and listen to the discussion. Dial-in information: 1-800-893-8850, using PIN 1435588. Please put your telephone on mute to make sure that you do not disrupt the discussion.

You can also listen to the discussion on each campus.
UAA: Administration and Humanities Building, 3800 Alumni Drive, Suite 204
UAS: Chancellor’s conference room in the Hendrickson Annex – HA 101D
UAF: Butrovich, Suite 106A

We would also very much appreciate it if you would note any questions and suggestions you may have and forward those to Abel Bult-Ito before or after the meetings (abultito@alaska.edu). We would like to involve you in the process. Abel will share this information with Soren and Tony so that the issues can be addressed at subsequent meetings.

This is a wonderful opportunity for United Academics to discuss the budget with the UA administration directly and the intent is to find solutions to the budget shortfalls that are constructive, may otherwise not have been considered, and above all protect our students.
