Feb 21: UA Board of Regents to host public testimony session via telephone

The public is invited to call in to share their thoughts on university issues with the University of Alaska Board of Regents during a public testimony period on Tuesday, Feb. 21, from 4-6 p.m. Individuals can participate by calling 1 (866) 726-0757 during this period.

Several months ago, the regents moved to hosting a statewide public testimony in lieu of in-person public testimony during the Board of Regents meetings. The audio session is designed to allow anyone from anywhere in the state to talk with the regents about issues of concern or interest. This two-hour call-in session is in advance of the full board meeting March 2-3 in Anchorage.

The public testimony session will air live on public television on KUAC HD2, and the audio will be live-streamed on KUAC2 at kuacii.streamon.fm. More information on the call-in session is available at https://www.alaska.edu/bor/public-testimony/. The agendas for committee and full board meetings are posted one week prior to the meeting date at http://alaska.edu/bor/agendas/.

KBC Student Association does a whale of a job!

The KBC Student Association took part in the Homer Chamber of Commerce's Winter Carnival's parade. The students created an imaginative float in the style of a "Chinese dragon"--except they decided on using a depiction of KBC's new mascot: a humpback whale!

The group earned the honor of receiving first place in the "animals, birds and sea creatures" category!

Congratulations to the Kachemak Bay Campus and specifically the Student Association!
