Chancellor Dan White will host a Nanook hockey stakeholder’s meeting on
Tuesday, June 18 from 5:30-6:30 p.m. in the Wood Center multi-level lounge
to discuss recent announcements about the UAF hockey playing venue. Members
of the public and university are encouraged to attend

Alaska(UAF) Nanooks will play 2019-20 at the Carlson Center UNLESS the ice craps out and then will be forced to play on campus at the 1000 seat Patty Center Ice Arena.

Two committees are being formed to meet this summer about moving entirely back on campus in two years or so. Arena expansion???? New Arena????? $$$

Meantime UAA(University of Alaska Anchorage Seawolves) are playing this upcoming season at the 800(hopefully expanded to 1000 by fall) at the Wells Fargo Sports Complex ice arena on their campus.

AD said nothing major will be done for at least a couple of years with Seawolves expansion project


UAA leaves 6400 seat Sullivan Arena/AK plays at 4300 seat Carlson Center for time being

WCHA wants 2500 minimum seating

UAF announces new leadership for Nanooks athletics
University of Alaska Fairbanks Chancellor Dan White has announced that Keith Champagne will take on a new role as leader of the Alaska Nanooks intercollegiate athletics program.

Champagne, who currently serves as vice chancellor for student affairs, will assume the duties of athletics director, as well as continue to serve as the leader of UAF’s student affairs division. He will take over for Sterling Steward, who stepped down earlier today.

“In addition to Vice Chancellor Champagne’s experience in student affairs, he has a solid background in athletics,” White said in a message to the UAF community. “I am confident that under his leadership UAF athletics will grow. I look forward to working with Dr. Champagne to establish a solid foundation and vibrant future for UAF athletics.”

Champagne and White will be available to speak with media regarding the change later today, Tuesday, June 11, at 2:30 p.m. in the chancellor’s conference room on the third floor of Signers’ Hall on the Fairbanks campus. A call-in number is available: 866-832-7806 PIN 1637788.

In his new role, Champagne plans to focus more on fundraising, marketing and community engagement.

“We have something very special here. We have some of the best student athletes in the country, and we have a university and a community that believe in us and want us to be successful,” Champagne said. “I am committed to building a program that our students, faculty, staff and community will be proud to support and celebrate.”


Champagne has a bachelor’s degree in communications public relations from Loyola University, a master’s degree in communications, training and development from Clarion University of Pennsylvania and a doctorate in educational leadership and policy studies from the University of Washington. His doctoral work focused on intercollegiate athletics leadership and sports management. Prior to joining the leadership team at UAF, he served in a variety of athletics and student services leadership positions at Central Washington University, including chief diversity officer for intercollegiate athletics and interim athletics director. He is a graduate of the Sports Management Institute and a member of the Sports Lawyers Association.

What was the beef with Sterling?

Someone found a Seawolf cap in the back of his closet. He said it wasn't his but why take the chance.

Go Nooks!
Go Blues!

The article said he "stepped down". I wonder if he decided to leave, or if he was let go.

Is it possible that UAA could establish a "Go Fund Me Page" to help with the cost of the WFSC Ice Arena upgrades? I may not be rich, but there are some hockey heavy hitters that could contribute nicely. Where is Scotty Gomez, Beagle and others that have the means to help contribute? Am I off base here?

I’d be fairly certain that they have been contacted many times and do support the program. I’d be willing to bet they support other causes as well.

If I were one of the ‘heavy hitters,’ before giving any large sums to the program now, the University of Alaska system would need to show that they can and will support a competitive Division I program in Anchorage. Otherwise, you just continue to put band aids on gunshot wounds. I sure hope the State of Alaska, the community and the University system can get it right and give the program the support it needs.

These are real good points!

Impacts of governor's recently proposed 40% cuts to the university system?

Bad.

Hoping the legislature overrides the atrocious decision by the Governor with the Masters of Education that’s trying to destroy your university system.

This coming week has the potential to be one of the most important and influential weeks in Alaskan history since it became a state. What happens may chart the course for the future for decades one way or another.

The R's backed and elected this guy.
They have made it clear they have no intention of overriding his vetoes.

The 5 day clock starts ticking when the special session starts is the way I understand it.
Who makes the determination of when the special session starts?
Will it be in Palin land or down South?
And who makes that call?
This whole thing is a farce.
