Three Chancellor's Show United Front
Chancellor John Pugh was joined by his counterparts from the University of Alaska Anchorage and Fairbanks in the capital city on Tuesday, February 28.
Chancellors Tom Case, Brian Rogers and Pugh addressed the Downtown Rotary Club and the University of Alaska Legislative Boosters Caucus on collaboration between the three main UA MAU's. "We are three universities and one system," said Rogers. The trio emphasized alignment and cooperation in programs such as engineering, health care, fisheries, marine transportation and e-learning. When asked about the need for more classrooms when more than one-third of classes are delivered through e-learning, Case said classrooms are vital to the collegiate experience. "By working together, we can do health care programs that just could not be done in other parts of the country," said Pugh. "We'll save the competition for sports," said Rogers.
