NACADA Region 8 Steering Committee
Deven Lisac, Alaska Liaison
What institution do you work for and what is your role there?
I’m with the Bristol Bay Campus in Dillingham Alaska, a satellite school of the University of Alaska Fairbanks. My focus is on distance learners and small colleges.
Why did you get involved with NACADA?
I got involved in NACADA to learn more about the Global Advising community, to learn from other Advisors, universities, administrators, and collaborate on advising best practices.
What are some of the projects you worked on during your time as one of the Alaska Liaisons on the steering committee?
On the steering committee I’ve been involved with assessing one of the NACADA goals of Provide professional development opportunities that are responsive to the needs of advisors and advising administrators.
How has being involved with NACADA helped you grow in your professional career?
NACADA has helped me make connections with other universities and personal. I’ve met others in the same field/department and we’ve been able to assist each other when new problems arise. We are able to collaborate on best practices.
Please share a little about yourself and a fun fact.
I’m from Dillingham Alaska. I love to play and explore the great outdoors. I love to Skate Ski and hike.
