UAS conducts convocation ceremonies before each fall semester.  Convocation, meaning an assembly of university members, is used to promote collaboration between faculty and staff at the university.  It also serves to welcome new faculty and introduce them to UAS policy and operating procedures.

Adjunct Orientation

Prior to the beginning of each fall and spring semester, UAS conducts formal orientations for adjunct faculty at each campus. These sessions are focused on giving adjunct faculty relevant information they need to succeed as instructors, including orienting them to available administrative, technological, and other resources.

The next Adjunct Orientation for the Juneau campus will take place January 8 in the Glacier View Room from 5:00 - 7:30 PM.  For handouts and current agenda, please visit the Spring Startup website.


UAS’ Fall convocation was held August 19-20, 2014 on the Juneau Auke Lake campus. Events included presentations by the Chancellor, Provost, and Faculty Senate President.  School and department meetings were also held, as well as faculty and staff general assemblies, and opportunities for professional development.  This year's agenda included Title IX training for all UAS faculty.  Click here for most recent agenda.

We’re interested in feedback from all faculty about the UAS Fall Convocation—its organization, scheduling, and value to you professionally.

Your response to this questionnaire will help the Faculty Senate President and Provost as they plan future Convocations. Please take a few minutes to fill out this survey. It is voluntary and it is completely anonymous. That said, your feedback will be most useful.
