The 2019 Staff Recognition and Development Day was held Wednesday, May 8, with the presentation of the Chancellor’s Cornerstone Award and the Longevity Awards from 10-11:30 a.m., and a lunch buffet from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The 2019 event featured three 45-minute presentations instead of classes, as had been done in recent years. The afternoon session included video “tours” of a number of UAF’s rural campuses and remote sites throughout Alaska. A wellness session was offered by Valerie Gifford from the School of Education and Mark Oldmixon from Nanook Recreation, and the final presentation was from Geoff Welch, owner of Date-Line Copies. An ice cream social followed.
