Training requirements and additional information about protection of minors can be found in the University of Alaska Board of Regents Protection of Minors Regulation or below in FAQs.

Frequently Asked Questions

If you work with minors for your job at UAS you may need a background check if you are alone with minors or they are under your care, custody, or control. If you have been doing these tasks in the past and have not had a background check, you will need to have one completed before you continue your work with minors.

All Authorized Adults and Supervised Adults must annually complete protection of minor and mandated reporter training courses and must complete those courses prior to having contact with or access to minors. UAS employees can obtain their training through the UAS Health and Safety Office 796-6496.

Biography

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.
