Sill time to apply for student housing at the Kenai River Campus

Many things are easier for students who choose to live on campus. Being across the street from the campus means no commute, more sleep and a readily available of potential friends and study partners. KPC’s growing residence life community still has space for new residents.

KPC students can complete their fall 2018 student housing application online. To complete an application, students need to log on to their student account on uaonline.alaska.edu, go to the “Student Services & Account Information” tab, click on “Campus Housing and Dining,” navigate to “KPC Housing” and select “Apply Online.”

KPC Residence Life is happy to assist students with the application process. Call 262-0256 or e-mail reslife@kpc.alaska.edu for assistance.

It’s always a good day when the new UAA Chancellor visits KPC!

Dr. Cathy Sandeen, incoming UAA chancellor, who takes the reins on Sept. 15 from Interim Chancellor Sam Gingrich, joined the UAA Faculty Senate at their fall retreat held for the first time at a UAA community campus on Aug. 17.

In Sandeen’s last position, she served as chancellor at the University of Wisconsin Colleges and the University of Wisconsin-Extension. Prior to that, she served as the vice president of the education attainment and innovation division at the American Council on Education and as the dean of the continuing education extension at the University of California Los Angeles.

Sandeen earned a master’s degree in broadcast communication from San Francisco State University and a bachelor’s degree in speech pathology from Humboldt State University. She received her master of business administration from the University of California Los Angeles in 2005 and her doctorate in communication from the University of Utah in 1992.

In her acceptance statement, Sandeen said, “ I am honored to be appointed chancellor of a dynamic university that plays such a vital role in surrounding communities, the region, and the state. During my visit, the optimistic and forward-looking spirit of the students, faculty, staff and community members I met impressed me deeply. I look forward to supporting UAA in making the leap to its next stage of distinction.”
