University of Alaska consolidates education programs

Bite-sized higher ed news from a campus near you

The University of Alaska (UA) Board of Regents on Wednesday approved a plan to consolidate its three education schools into the College of Education at the UA Southeast campus. 

The vote came after UA President Jim Johnsen previously recommended that the College of Education fall under UA Fairbanks. But on Wednesday, he said he wanted to have the Southeast campus serve as headquarters following strong public support.

Education faculty, classes, and students will not change across the UA system, but the College of Education's dean and administration will now be at the Southeast campus (Hanlon, Alaska Dispatch News, 12/14).
