Board of Regents Policy 02.04.04
In recognition of the importance of citizen involvement in the planning and implementation of higher education programs and services for the state of Alaska, the Board of Regents hereby establishes Campus Councils for the University of Alaska Southeast. These councils, advisory in nature, shall offer guidance to each local educational unit and serve as a link for its public constituencies to the Board of Regents.
The chancellor shall appoint no fewer than 7 and no more than 15 persons to serve on a council in Juneau and in each community or region where a university campus is located. Council membership should be broadly representative of the constituencies served by the campus.
Council members shall serve without compensation but may be reimbursed for reasonable and necessary travel expenses in accordance with Policy and Regulation.
Membership on Campus Council
Membership on Campus Councils shall be determined as follows:
- Council members shall be residents of the campus service area. To assure vital community interests are considered, members from the following categories are recommended:
- Local Government
- School District
- State Government
- Federal Government
- Chamber of Commerce
- Native Corporations
Council members appointed from one of the organizations specified in category #1 may serve until leaving the organization.
Local members of the Alaska Legislature, the president of the UAS Alumni Association and former regents of the University of Alaska may serve as ex officio members unless appointed to a designated or at-large seat.
- Council members shall be appointed for terms not to exceed four years. Terms of membership will be staggered to provide overlap of incumbent and new members, and members shall be eligible to serve a maximum of three consecutive terms.
- All terms of appointment shall expire on June 30.
- At least three months prior to the expiration date of an appointment, the Campus Council shall solicit nominations for new members.
- The Campus Council will review the nominations and forward a list of nominees through the chief administrative officer to the chancellor at least 30 days prior to the effective date of the new appointment. Appointments will be made by the chancellor. Vacancies occurring during a term shall be filled in a similar manner and replacements shall complete the unexpired portion of the term. The Campus Council may make recommendations concerning membership.
