The UAS Sitka Fisheries Technology program has been busily putting all of its lectures for its flagship course onto an iPad! Introduction to Fisheries of Alaska will be available starting September 1 for anyone who wants to take this 3-credit course without the constraints of internet access or visiting a face to face class. We will provide the waterproof iPad but you will need to ask for instructor approval from Program Director Reid Brewer. Click the headline to check out the video on our YouTube page.
Dr Paula Martin
The Sitka Campus is pleased to announce that Dr. Paula Martin will become our new Campus Director. Currently, Dr. Martin serves as Assistant Director for Academic Affairs and Associate Professor at UAA’s Kenai Peninsula College. She earned her PhD at the University of Massachusetts Amherst in entomology in 1993. She taught at Emory University, where she led its Human and Natural Ecology program. Paula then accepted an opportunity to create a new department, Environmental Science and Studies at Juniata College in Pennsylvania. This department grew rapidly, and Dr. Martin augmented her experience as full Professor by becoming Assistant Provost at Juniata. According to UAS Chancellor Rick Caulfield, “I am most impressed with Paula’s skill set as she steps into the Sitka Campus directorship. She has been instrumental in the success of providing online and hybrid courses. She has special interests in community campus and higher education administration, and sustainability. I am sure she will be a perfect fit in Sitka!”
