This past summer, as part of the centennial celebration of the University of Alaska and UAF, Summer Sessions invited five former leaders of the school to return and reflect on their time with the institution. Brian Rogers story offers a unique perspective. Not only was he a student at the university, as a legislator he oversaw the subcommittee that dealt with the school’s budget. Later, he would serve statewide as Director of Budget Development and Vice-President for Finance. When he started his own company, Governor Tony Knowles appointed him to the UA Board of Regents and following that service he was tapped to become the chancellor of UAF. So, as you can hear, by any measure his experiences with the school is almost unparalleled. It turned out Brian’s experience with higher education had deep roots.
