System Office Cookies & Conversation with President Pat Pitney

November 30, 2022

Dear System Office staff,

Thank you for your hard work and dedication to the university system this year. Before the holiday break begins, I invite you to join me for the System Office “Cookies & Conversation.”

We’re planning two drop-in holiday events:

  • Fri. December 9 at 2 p.m. - 3 p.m. in Fairbanks (Butro 202 suite) 
  • Fri. December 16 at 2 p.m. - 3 p.m. in Anchorage (Bragaw 102)  

These informal gatherings will provide a chance for staff to stop by and enjoy a holiday treat. I will be onsite for both events and look forward to seeing you for in-person conversation. 

Please plan to come and go when you are able. We are keeping these gatherings informal and flexible to give all employees an opportunity to talk one-on-one.

I hope this holiday season brings you joy, rest, friendship and fulfillment, and that you have many more blessings in the coming year.

I wish you all a happy holiday season and a wonderful New Year.


Pat Pitney
President, University of Alaska
