UAS Campus Advisory Councils

The University of Alaska Board of Regents established campus councils for each of the University of Alaska Southeast campuses in Juneau, Ketchikan and Sitka, in recognition of the importance of citizen involvement in the planning and implementation of higher education programs and services for the state of Alaska and for the Southeast region.  The advisory councils are charged with offering guidance to the Chancellor and the campus leadership, and serving as a link between UAS’s public constituencies and the Board of Regents.
