UA regents move to consolidate University of Alaska system into one accredited university - Wesley Early, Alaska Public Media
The University of Alaska Board of Regents voted 8 to 3 to move towards consolidating the entire university system to a single accredited university. The board discussed several proposals for the university system well into the afternoon in Anchorage Tuesday. Governor Mike Dunleavy’s budget cuts to the University of Alaska total about $136 million, or roughly 41 percent of state support. The plan regents adopted is to reorganize the University of Alaska from three separate, individually accredited universities to a single accredited university.
