System Governance

SAA Elections

Check out the new 2017-2019 representatives


Shiva is Manager of Compliance, Information & Records at University of Alaska System. In this role, he provides oversight and compliance on UA's content management system - OnBase and Payment Card Industry compliance program. He has advanced degree in Physics and MBA from School of Management, UAF. Before coming to UA System office, Shiva worked at University of Alaska Fairbanks for 7 years as a researcher, project manager and faculty. As a project manager and technical point of contact for the Department of Defense program, he led the UAF team on nanotechnology projects. Working with Grants & Contracts, he completed the project successfully in compliance with DOD contract regulations on restricted data management, retention and public disclosure. He has authored 70 technical and trade articles on subjects of interest.


I have been with the University for almost five years. The majority of the time was with Statewide in Fairbanks, working as the former administrative assistant for the vice president of finance as well as being the Butrovich building manager. Last July I moved to Anchorage to work at the UAA Justice Center. I enjoyed my time assisting faculty and students. However, I had the opportunity to return to Statewide in Anchorage with the System Office of Risk Services and I’m happy to be back at Statewide. I have an interest in learning more about the University and in helping to show the University, the Legislature and the community what Statewide does for the University system, that we take the budget situation seriously and what we are doing to lead by example.


Monique Musick is the public information coordinator for the Office of Public Affairs, incorporating a variety of communications roles, from press releases to internal communications and social media for the university system. Monique first became involved with SAA in 2009 shortly after coming to Statewide and has been a part of governance ever since, including roles on Staff Alliance and as chair of the System Governance Council. She enjoys being an active member of governance, supporting co-workers, and participating in policy review..


Prior to finding a new home at UA Foundation in 2015, I worked 6 years in Public Accounting where I developed a passion for inspiring and challenging co-workers to continually learn, grow and improve. I believe people are the foundation to any organization, and that effective change is only successful when the affected people actively and willfully participate. As such, I am honored to have an opportunity to join the other great leaders on SAA. It is my goal to re-energize Statewide and fan the flame of already competent employees. In addition, I am interested in learning more of the “why” behind the “what”, and hope to bridge that gap so that we can make better educated decisions as we voice our opinions and influence change during these difficult times.


Lead Operator & Operations Technician

I was born and raised in Fairbanks, went to Fairbanks public schools, and earned a Bachelor’s in Business Administration from UAF with an emphasis in Finance and a minor in Computer Information Systems. My wife and I have chosen to raise our three daughters here in the Interior. I would be honored to serve as an SAA Member. I’m excited to use this opportunity not only for person growth and development, but also as an opportunity to be a more active member of the UA community.


I have lived in the Fairbanks area my entire life. I have worked in OIT since 2010 and I am passionate about using and innovating technology to further the goals of the university and employees. I work with statewide staff and university students every day, and I want to do everything I can to contribute to a better environment for all employees, faculty and students.


I moved to Alaska in ’83 courtesy of the United States Air Force. My Dad retired in ’92, and we never left. I have a Bachelor’s in Business Administration with an emphasis in Finance and Accounting. I was an Internal Auditor with the University from 2007-2014 and I received my Certified Internal Auditor designation in March of 2014. I transitioned to SW Payroll in May of 2014 as the Senior Tax Accountant. I have enjoyed my time serving as an alternate. It has helped me to see statewide from a perspective outside the positions that I hold. I hope to continue with SAA for another term.

Thank you for participating in the 2017 SAA election.
