Chancellor Sandeen Appoints Interim Director

UAA Chancellor Cathy Sandeen announced that following Campus Director Alan Fugleberg’s retirement, Betty Walters, of Kodiak, will serve as Interim Campus Director beginning Oct. 29 while Kodiak College continues a national search for a permanent director.

A respected educator since 1964, Betty served as superintendent of the Kodiak Island Borough School District for more than a decade, as well as an adjunct instructor for UAA and Kodiak College for 25 years. She has also successfully served institutions in interim roles, including interim deputy commissioner for the Alaska Department of Education and Early Development from March-November 2016, supervising that department’s activities with more than 200 staff, including K-12 oversight as well as state archives, museums and library.

Chancellor Sandeen stated “ I am confident that Betty’s combination of experience and knowledge of the Kodiak community will serve us well during this interim."
