The UAS Web Strategy Committee is a consensus-based committee, accountable to the UAS Executive Cabinet, co-led by the regional web designer and web developer. The committee is comprised of representatives from each UAS campus and key regional departments. Three members of the committee have been appointed by the Provost, three by the Vice Chancellor for Enrollment Management, and two each by the Ketchikan and Sitka Campus Directors.

The UAS Web Strategy Committee is responsible for:

  • Analyzing current web strategies and identifying opportunities for improvement
  • Setting UAS web operational standards and guidelines
  • Planning and coordinating ongoing web projects
  • Promoting “best-practices”  to department content creators
  • Reviewing future directions and present recommendations to UAS leadership
  • Recommending UAS web policies

In fulfilling these responsibilities, the committee strives to:

  • Coordinate UAS web technologies to ensure they interoperate as a coherent whole;
  • Convey one UAS brand with a consistent design and navigation scheme;
  • Support UAS departments in the efficient fulfillment of their objectives;
  • Include the perspective of UAS stakeholder groups including Faculty Senate and Student Government.

The UAS executive cabinet formalized and chartered the UAS Web Strategy Committee on September 5, 2012.

Like many other Juneauites, I came to Juneau from the Lower 48 almost 12 years ago for just a summer but fell in love with the people and the area they call home.  I promptly traded an old, loud, underpowered, Kawasaki for a louder, rustier, and even more underpowered Subaru and a pair of Xtratuffs, excited for the opportunity to live, work, and play in Southeast Alaska.  Outside of work I enjoy judo, hockey, playing music, and more importantly, spending time with my wife and family.

I look forward to working with the marketing / PR team to highlight the great work of students, faculty, and staff of UAS.  Throughout my career as engineer, programmer, network administrator, and more recently as K-12 technology specialist, I have found that the ominously omnipresent "other duties as assigned" can be the most challenging and rewarding.

I've loved living in Alaska since I first arrived here at the tender age of 2.  I've been blessed to see much of the state having lived in Chugiak, Talkeetna, Anchorage, Fairbanks, and Ketchikan.  The beauty and serenity of this special place we live (even with the large amounts of rain) is inspiring.  After graduating from a little Alaskan high school (we had a graduating class of 18 students) I attended the University of Alaska Fairbanks, graduating with a BA in Business Administration in 1990.  I 've had the pleasure of working with college students for over twenty years and I am inspired by the perseverance of our students as well as the power of education to help students change their lives for the better.
