    Endowment supporting UAS Alaska College of Education Surpasses $1 Million

    When the University of Alaska Board of Regents voted to make the University of Alaska Southeast home for the statewide Alaska College of Education, it did so with confidence that UAS would continue making teacher preparation one of its top priorities. The need for quality Alaska-educated teachers has never been greater, and the mission of the Alaska College of Education is to grow that number significantly in the years ahead.

    The decision of the Board of Regents was supported by a generous pledge from the City and Borough of Juneau creating the Teacher Excellence Fund (TEF) at the Juneau Community Foundation (JCF). With CBJ’s support and gifts from over 170 donors, a $1 million endowment has been raised to educate more quality Alaskan teachers, principals, and superintendents. Each year, the JCF plans to distribute approximately 5% of the fund’s earnings to underwrite UAS leadership in teacher preparation and educational leadership across the state. A Juneau-based advisory committee, which includes the mayor and city manager, works with the UAS Education dean to determine how best to use the funds. During its inaugural year, the fund is providing $25,000 to help grow the number of young Alaskans who choose to become teachers.

    To learn more about education degrees available through the UAS Alaska College of Education, visit uas.alaska.edu/education or speak to an advisor at (907) 796-6076.

    UAS researchers investigating harmful algal blooms in Southeast Alaska

    University of Alaska Southeast (UAS) researchers Dr. John Harley and Dr. Matthew Pawlus have been studying shellfish toxicity to help create a safer environment in Southeast Alaska. Shellfish like mussels and clams have been an abundant food source in the region, however recent harmful algal blooms (HABs) have increased the likelihood that consumption could be unsafe.

    To address this, ACRC postdoctoral researcher John Harley is collaborating with the Southeast Alaska Tribal Ocean Research (SEATOR) group to create a database to help map and predict paralytic shellfish poisoning (PSP) events. There are 17 tribal partners included in the network, a map of which can be found at seator.org/seatt.

    Related research is being done by Professor Matthew Pawlus, working with student Shane Bennett, at the University of Alaska Southeast in Ketchikan to explore alternatives to current shellfish toxin testing methods. It was announced last month that Dr. Pawlus was awarded the 2019 Spike Award for Best UAS Invention Disclosure for the Nematode Biosensor for Shellfish toxin home kit, from the Office of Intellectual Property and Commercialization (OIPC) at UAF during its 2019 Invention Disclosure and Entrepreneurial Activities (IDEAS) award ceremony.

    The Spirit of Ho’oilina: Rekindling Indigenous Traditions of Alaska and Hawai’i

    In late May 2019, a select group of University of Alaska Southeast (UAS) students, faculty, and staff joined members of the Alaska Native and Native Hawaiian communities for a conference in Honolulu entitled Ho‘oilina: Empowering Our Traditions of Exploration. In the Hawaiian language, “Ho’oilina” means ‘legacy.’ The conference explored ancient navigation and wayfinding traditions, the advancement of Indigenous languages, solutions to protect the Pacific Ocean, and ways to heal Indigenous communities in body, mind, and spirit.

    The UAS contingent was part of a larger group of Alaskans, which included representatives from the Sealaska Corporation, First Alaskans Institute, Tlingit and Haida Central Council, Yakutat Tlingit Tribe, Goldbelt Heritage Foundation, and the Woosh.Ji.Een Dance Group. Yakutat participants brought with them a traditional Tlingit canoe that was used in ceremonial gatherings. Members of the UAS Wooch.een student club attended and performed with the Woosh.Ji.Een dancers at various venues in O’ahu throughout the duration of the conference.

    Declarations of unity and kinship were the highlight of the conference, with the two groups agreeing to work in solidarity to support Indigenous education. "The Ho'oilina Conference was an exceptional model of the purpose and the possibilities of engaging Indigenous wisdom in higher education, “ said UAS Associate Vice Chancellor for Alaska Native Programs, Ronalda Cadiente Brown. “We joined in an important conversation with our Hawaiian neighbors of continued growth and development for learning experiences that reflect the diversity and exemplify high standards and meaningful engagement for our learning communities.”

    University of Alaska Southeast Joins Open Textbook Network in Support of Affordable Course Content for Students

    The University of Alaska Southeast (UAS) has joined the Open Textbook Network (OTN), an organization which assists universities and colleges to promote the use of open textbooks and practices. OTN maintains the Open Textbook Library, “the premiere resource for peer-reviewed academic textbooks,” according to their website. Textbooks and materials through this service are free, licensed openly, and complete, promoting both academic freedom and student success.

    Using the service enables faculty to choose which course materials are appropriate for their students. The OTN provides faculty ratings and comments for their content to help with the selection. The service results in significant savings for students by decreasing the need to purchase books and other materials. For the most part, the books are delivered and used online, however faculty reserve the option for printing at a significantly reduced price compared to traditional textbooks. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the price of textbooks has risen more than 1,000 percent between 1997 and 2015, and 87.5% since 2006.
