UAF has migrated the 2016-2017 academic catalog into a new online content management system called CourseLeaf. CourseLeaf will eventually allow units to manage their content directly through an online interface.
The Office of Admissions and the Registrar has adjusted the catalog’s formatting and organization to fit the CourseLeaf system and to correct errors and inconsistencies. Some wording may have been modified slightly to better fit the CourseLeaf system, but the original intent should have been retained.
Units should review relevant content and send any error corrections to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, Aug. 26.
The UAF facts and figures website, http://www.uaf.edu/facts/, includes brief institutional and first-year data profiles, along with enrollment information and the most recent graduation numbers. A PDF is available for download as well.
Departments, clubs and community organizations can register for Party in the Park during UAF’s Welcome Week. The party kicks off Tuesday, Aug. 30, at noon in Constitution Park (near the UAF Bookstore).
The event will feature games, activities, food and more, all hosted by our UAF community as we welcome students back to campus.
Every campus department, club and community service organization is welcome to register. One table and chair will be provided per booth. The event is coordinated by New Student Orientation and the Leadership, Involvement and Volunteer Experience program.
Registration is available at uaf.edu/live — just follow the party bears to register.
The UAF Office of the Provost is accepting applications for the Academic Leadership Institute through Aug. 29, 2016.
The institute is designed for new administrators and anyone interested in leadership within an academic institution. People from outside Fairbanks are encouraged to apply. They can participate through an audio link if selected.
About a dozen participants will read books and gather one Saturday morning monthly during the 2016-2017 academic year to engage with an invited speaker and discuss a case study.
All UAF student, faculty and staff parking decals, including those for gold lots, will expire Aug. 31, 2016. Current decals are required on all vehicles to avoid parking citations.
The new 2016-2017 decals will go on sale Aug. 1 and can be purchased online at the parking services website, http://uaf.edu/finserv/bursar/parkingservices/. Gold permit holders will have a two-week window to renew decals before their spots are given to people on the wait list.
The Office of the Bursar offers sustainable permits via payroll deduction. These will automatically renew each year and save you the hassle of renewing annually or standing in line at the office. If you purchased a sustainable permit last year, do not throw it away!
If you have any questions, please contact the Office of the Bursar at 907-474-5053.
