UA Summit Team 

The UA Summit Team 

Effective July 1, 2017 President Johnsen expanded the Summit Team and established new or expanded system-wide councils with clear communications links to the Summit Team. Additional participation on the Summit Team will increase communications, enhance collaboration and raise awareness of successes and challenges throughout the system.

The Summit Team now includes leaders of key functional areas throughout the university system, as well as system governance bodies and the chair of each system-wide council. Chaired by President Johnsen, the expanded Summit Team will meet monthly for four hours via video, and twice annually for full day face-to-face meetings.

The decision making authority of the Summit Team will transfer to the Executive Council, which is also chaired by President Johnsen, and includes the chancellors, vice president for University Relations, and vice president for Academic Affairs and Research. They will meet weekly by video.

The new system-wide councils will play a critical role in collaborative and aligned development of the policies, programs, and processes necessary to meet the state’s higher education needs. This work is especially important now given our heightened accountability for addressing Alaska’s large education attainment gaps during difficult fiscal conditions.
