Engage! Seminar @ APU, Atwood Building, 2nd Floor
Apr 7 @ 9:30 am – 10:30 am

Engage Seminar LogoSponsored by Alaska Pacific University’s Business Administration and Liberal Studies Departments

“The Future of Work” &
“2nd Generation Leadership in Alaska Native Corporations—Our Future”

When: April 7, 2012, 10:00am – 3:00pm (doors open at 9:30am)
Where: APU, Atwood Building, 2nd Floor

Registration: $20 for the general public (cash or check); free for students.
Payment for admission due at the event. Registration includes a light lunch.
To pre-register or for more information: contact Katie Kelley in the APU Business Administration Department, 564-8234, kkelley@alaskapacific.edu

10:00am- 12:00pm: “The Future of Work”
Dale Lehman, Professor of Economics (Facilitator), Alaska Pacific University
Neal Fried, Economist, Alaska Department of Labor and Workforce Development
Bill Popp, President & CEO, AEDC
Patty Hickok, Director of HR Process Improvement, NANA Development Corporation

Recent economic events (the Financial Meltdown, the Great Recession, the Eurozone crisis) have stirred people’s thinking about the future economy and how it will serve people’s needs to make a living, have a fulfilling life, and create opportunities for future generations. Stagnating wages for the middle class is being seen as more than a transient phenomenon. The rise of the wealthy class, combined with growing globalization, is causing people to reexamine their choices of education and career. This seminar is focused on the emerging question: what is the future of work?

Central themes include impact of technology advances on jobs, income inequality, and the future world prosperity. The panel will explore these issues and suggest whether job, career, and education need to be approached differently than in the past. No answers are expected, but meaningful questions can be raised. Should/Can the government improve the lot of the working class? Is government the answer or the problem? How does debt (personal and national) influence our future prospects?

12:-00- 1:00pm: Lunch & Q&A with presenters and participants

1:00-3:00pm: “2nd Generation Leadership in Alaska Native Corporations—Our Future”
Jason Metrokin, President & CE0, Bristol Bay Native Corp
Gail Schubert, President & CEO, Bering Strait Regional Corporation
Sheri Buretta, Chairman of the Board, Chugach Alaska Corporation
Jeff Kinneeveauk, President & CEO, ASRC Energy Services
Andrew Guy, CEO & President, Calista Corporation

As Alaska Native Corporations grow and promote workforce development in the State of Alaska, many questions arise for a “second generation” of leaders. What are the challenges and opportunities facing ANCs today, and what educational skills are needed for shareholders to fill the jobs being created? How should Alaska Native college students prepare to be the next generation of leaders? What does the best possible future for Alaska Native people look like? How can APU help Native people flourish in the next 10 years? 20 years? 50 years? What are the best ways of taking new technologies—whether they be alternative energy, high tech fabrics, or green building strategies—to rebuild our villages so they are once again economically viable for those who wish to remain in those communities? Alaska Native traditional ways have a lot to teach us about living a meaningful life. In a technologically driven world where communication is instant but isolation is rampant, what insights from Native traditional ways could help all Alaskans live meaningful lives?

Annie Olsen ‘Water’s Edge’ & James Kaiser ‘Alaskan Grown’ First Friday Opening @ Leah J. Peterson Gallery - Carr-Gottstein Building
Aug 3 @ 5:30 pm – 7:00 pm

Alaska Pacific University hosts the First Friday Opening for Annie Olsen’s “WaterEdge” and James Kaiser’s “Alaskan Grown” exhibits in the Leah J. Peterson Gallery located in the Carr-Gottstein building.

About her work, Annie Olson says, “Water awakens one’s spirit, especially when one is at the edge. So often I find myself there observing an egret taking flight over a lagoon in Mexico, a wildflower bending in the breeze by an Alaskan river, or just the flow of the water itself. These unexpected encounters are always rewarding, making my heart feel at one with the Universe.”

About his work, James Kaiser says, “Community is an important part of my life. With communication connection, and dialog amongst artists, ideas are formed. I enjoy connecting cultural concepts with the language of art, creating designs through the medium of stained glass. This integration of our Alaskan environment and its collective experiences.

The exhibits will run from August 3 – 26.

Deland Anderson ‘Vast Horizons: New Work’ First Friday Opening in ConocoPhillips Gallery, Grant Hall @ ConocoPhillips Gallery - Grant Hall
Aug 3 @ 5:30 pm – 7:00 pm

Alaska Pacific University host Deland Anderson’s exhibit, “Vast Horizons: New Work,” in the ConocoPhillips Gallery in Grant Hall.

About his paintings, Anderson says, “Alaska’s majestic mountains capes quite my mind and release my soul. Where the land meets the sky, I find my future. The paintings in this exhibit are mementos of significant ‘future’ moments for me. Each is of a new day dawning, of special evening descending, of new experiences ventured, or of rate encounters with extraordinary natural phenomenon.”

The exhibits will run from August 3 – 26.

Startup Weekend Anchorage @ Atwood Center
Sep 21 @ 6:00 pm – Sep 24 @ 9:00 pm

Startup Week at Alaska Pacific University’s Atwood Hall is a weekend-long, hands-on experience where entrepreneurs and aspiring entrepreneurs can find out if startup ideas are viable. On average, half of Startup Weekend’s attendees have technical or design backgrounds, the other half have business backgrounds. Beginning with open mic pitches on Friday, attendees bring their best ideas and inspire others to join their team. Over Saturday and Sunday teams focus on customer development, validating their ideas, practicing LEAN Startup Methodologies and building a minimal viable product. On Sunday evening teams demo their prototypes and receive valuable feedback from a panel of experts.

GCI will donate Alaska Airline air miles for the winning team.

Startup Weekend attendees’ backgrounds are roughly 50% technical (developers, coders, designers) and 50% business (marketing, finance, law). What unites all attendees is a common interest in entrepreneurship: whether a serial entrepreneur or new to the startup scene, every attendee is interested in working with a like-minded, motivated and skilled team to develop a product or business in one weekend. If this sounds like you, this is the event for you!

Go to the Anchorage Startup Weekend website and select the Register button. If you are a student, use the Promotional Code = STUDENT, and get a 50% discount fee on registration. Student IDs will be checked at event registration.

Notice of Public Meeting: University Lake Drive Extension Project @ Municipality of Anchorage Planning and Development Center | Anchorage | Alaska | United States

The Municipality of Anchorage (MOA) Department of Public Works, Project Management, and Engineering Division (PM&E) is working with Alaska Pacific University (APU) to upgrade and extend University Lake Drive eastward and northward to eventually connect with University Drive. The proposed road extension will be on APU’s campus north of the MOA’s University Lake Dog Park. The extension of University Lake Drive is in the APU Master Plan and it is intended to:

  • provide better circulation through the APU campus,
  • provide access to APU endowment lands, and
  • provide an alternative access onto and off of campus inthe event of an emergency.

Survey field work to confirm the project area boundaries is complete. The public involvement, preliminary engineering, and environmental documentation phases of the project have now started and construction is anticipated in 2014.

Public Lecture: “Freedom of the Glorious Children of God” @ Grant Hall Theatre
Aug 20 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Public Lecture: "Freedom of the Glorious Children of God" @ Grant Hall Theatre | Anchorage | Alaska | United States

Jerusalem-based scholar Gregory T. Tatum, O.P will be delivering a public talk tonight, Aug. 20, starting at 7 p.m. in the Grant Hall Theater at APU. Titled “Freedom of the Glorious Children of God,” the lecture considers themes of liberation and embodied glorification.

Tatum’s talk precedes his new fall 2013 course examining St. Paul’s Letter to the Romans, among letters whose authorship by the apostle is undisputed. The class extends Paul’s liberation message beyond the familiar concept of freedom from Mosaic Law.

Holder of a doctorate in New Testament and Christian Origins from Duke University, Tatum is a professor since 2006 at the internationally ranked Ecole Biblique et Archeologique Francais in Jerusalem.

India Travel Information Session @ Grant Hall Lobby

social entrepreneurship aug 21

You may be interested but are concerned with the cost of travel. So we want to share this important information on fundraising to support your travel cost to India in January 2014. Please see the attached flyer for full details. We have devised a solid plan to raise funds for this purpose with your participation.

The proceeds from the sale of tickets to APU Production Guild’s shows (two in November 2013) will go to support the travel cost. The caveat here is that the travel class will market and sell tickets to the Anchorage community (APU students attend free). Business administration faculty will provide marketing guidance to students on this endeavor. See attached brochure for other fundraising plans. We are confident that students can raise at least half the cost of their travel if not more.
In mid-January we will be traveling to New Delhi, the beautiful state of Rajastan, and Agra including a visit to Taj Mahal.

Please attend any one of the following information sessions to get more information about the course and fundraising plan:

August 28th- 5:30 p.m in the Grant Hall lobby
August 29th -12:30 p.m. Grant Hall lobby
September 9th – 5:30 p.m. Grant Hall lobby

We look forward to your participation in this travel course experience!

All the best,

APU Production Guild presents “13 Ways to Screw Up Your College Interview” @ Grant Hall Theater
Nov 22 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

The APU Production Guild presents: “13 Ways to Screw Up Your College Interview and 14 More Ways to Screw Up Your College Interview” by Ian McWethy.

When two college recruiters at a prestigious university need to fill one last spot to keep their jobs, many eccentric, dimwitted and slightly-insane high school seniors are eager to come in for an interview. What seems like a simple task turns into a nightmare when the applications turn out to be a reality TV star, a practicing vampire, an amateur magician, and others that are much, much worse. Each applicant’s interview hilariously illustrates what NOT to do at a college interview.

In Grant Hall Theater from 7pm to 8:30pm

Anchorage Opera: La Cambiale di Matrimonio @ Grant Hall Theater / ER Brown Auditorium
Jan 24 @ 8:00 pm – Feb 2 @ 11:00 pm

A Delightful Farce
Composed by Rossini for Venice when he was just 18, The Marriage Proposal lays the foundation for the comic characters and mucial moments that become his more famous opera The Barber of Seville just six years later.

Tobias Mill, a rich English merchant, agrees to marry his daughter Fanny to a Canadian, Mr Slook, whom he has never seen. Fanny, however, has given her heart to the young and impoverished Edward Milfort. The comedy develops when Slook, in colonial garb, with manners to suit, arrives and is confronted by Milfort, who is anxious to prevent the match, and by Mill, who is determined to enforce the contract.

La Cambiale di Matrimonio is presented by Anchorage Opera.

House of YES @ Grant Hall Theater
Feb 28 @ 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm

Yes! Produced in Alaska by Alaskans. Synesthesia Artist Collective’s entire Cast, Crew, and Production team is comprised of local, Resident Artists who, in effort to produce barrier breaking works, will present Anchorage with the Alaskan Premiere of ‘The House of Yes’.

Featuring Anchorage Resident Artists. Cast: Chloe Akers, Taran Haynes, Andrea Staats, Lisa Willis, Austin Roach. With Production Team: Alex Albrecht, Claire J Burgandy, Erin Campbell, Cedar Cussins, Christine A Eagleson, Lucy Franklin, Sierra Ileta.
Directed by Scott Heverling.

This limited access production will perform at Alaska Pacific University’s Grant Hall, starting Friday, February 28th, at 8PM continuing March 1, 6, 7, 8, with matinee performances at 3PM on March 2nd and 9th.

THE House Of Yes is a fantastical, new cult classic for our modern times. A dark, comedic theatrical drama about The Pascals, for whom the clock stopped with the Kennedy assassination, shut in as a Thanksgiving hurricane swirls outside. Arriving at the head of the storm’s eye are Jackie-O’s twin brother, Marty and his fiancee Lesly. This ruins everything. Marty’s engagement is a threat to the well-being of this family and a greater threat to Jackie-O, who has always wanted her twin brother for herself. Fine by their mother, who’s still lamenting her husband’s desertion, and by puppyish younger brother Anthony who immediately yearns for Lesly. The resulting battle becomes something of a class struggle between the Pascals’ somewhat-poetic insanity and Lesly’s plebeian pragmatism.

The House of Yes exhibits an exaggerated scenario of a family who are so disconnected from the rest of society, that they live to exist only within the confines of their home. The ramifications are staggering. The House of Yes is a soberingly relevant statement on the direction our society has taken. Entitlement is becoming a new epidemic. Exceptions are more common than adherence. How soon before “Affluenza” runs Rampant?

Synesthesia Artist Collective is a new, leading edge Pre-Professional community organization founded by Alaskan artist, Scott Heverling. Teamed with Syn Arts Collectives Vicente Capala, Rachel Droege, Joyce Mayer, and Lisa Willis in the interest of providing a collaborative and creative environment inclusive of various artistic mediums for Alaska’s resident artists and arts community alike. Syn Arts is venturing to foster edgy, multi-dimensional art that expands Alaska’s mainstream arts scene, further inspiring developmental and experimental productivity.
