Putting Students First

Pete Pinney

Pete Pinney

My UAF Summer Sessions series continues with Pete Pinney. Pete has a long and multi-faceted history with the University of Alaska Fairbanks. The school awarded him an MFA in Creative Writing in 1988. He taught English for years, becoming a full professor in 2005.

He received the Emil Usibelli Distinguished Service Award in 2006 and the KUAC/Alaska One volunteer of the year award in 2001.

His administrative service includes stints as Associate Vice Chancellor of Rural, Community and Native Education as well as Dean of the College of Community and Rural Development from 2014-2017. Other service saw him acting as Interim Vice Provost of Outreach/Director of UAF Cooperative Extension Service.

He remains fully engaged within the community as well, serving as PFLAG’s treasure for more than 15 years. He is currently Executive Director of the North Star Community Foundation.

And Chris Lott is back with another Katexic Clippings.
