In an e-mail sent today by UA Outreach, President Pat Gamble announced his request that the University of Alaska Board of Regents revisit the $320,000 bonus decision. The Board of Regents is planning to meet in executive session on September 8 to consider Gamble’s request, according to the news release.
Thanks to all of you who signed the petition, engaged others in conversation, participated in the street demonstrations, wrote letters to the editor and op-eds, made signs and coffee, tweeted, and otherwise engaged in work to attain this victory.
