University of Alaska Names Johnsen President
With a unanimous vote of all regents participating, the University of Alaska (UA) Board of Regents appointed Dr. James R. Johnsen as the 14th president of the UA system. The vote took place during a special meeting of the board on July 28.
Johnsen, a former University of Alaska executive, currently serves as Senior Vice President of Human Resources and Process Transformation at Alaska Communications. Johnsen will succeed Patrick K. Gamble effective September 1, 2015. Gamble announced his retirement in December 2014 and in April agreed to extend his resignation date to the end of August to allow sufficient time for the Board of Regents to conduct a thorough review before making a final decision.
