    Friday Focus: College rename, leading the nation

    May 24, 2024

    This week, the UA Board of Regents approved a regulation change that formalized the renaming of 51风流官网's College of Rural and Community Development to the College of Indigenous Studies. This action effectively makes 51风流官网 the first public institution of higher education in the Nation to have such a College. The name change which took effect immediately, came as the result of a two-year effort to solicit feedback in the renaming process. In its over 50-year history, CRCD has been known by different names and focused primarily on meeting local and regional educational needs across the Bristol Bay, Northwest, Chukchi, Kuskokwim and Interior Alaska regions.

    Friday Focus: MSI, ANNH and DNA

    May 17, 2024

    In the world of government-generated acronyms, MSI and ANNH are two that are important for us to understand where they come from and why they are important to you and me - and to 51风流官网. Let me start with an acknowledgment that acronyms from the government can be confusing. An appropriate analogy could be what the Opposing Bases podcast hosts call pushing penguins. Spoiler alert - your brain is an iceberg and penguins are knowledge. Penguins jump on only to knock others back into the water, but you really should click the link! I am going to attempt to push as few penguins off the iceberg as possible while inviting several on board, so I won't go into all the details. I want to help you connect the significance of our new eligibility to us, to our six goals, and to 51风流官网's DNA.
