FAIRBANKS, Alaska (KTVF) An emergency University of Alaska Board of Regents meeting was held at UAF Monday, 10/28.

In anticipation of next week's normal meeting, the UA Board of Regents gathered to clarify some of the language in a letter to the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities, the organization that will determine accreditation.

The letter is in response to the possibility of University of Alaska losing its accreditation.

UA Board of Regents Chair, John Davies, says the letter was requested by the NCCU by October 31st.

"We've been working with the chancellors and with our president and with our vice chair and others on the council trying to pull that response together. Today was the last review of that to make it official so that I could submit it on behalf of the board," said Davies.

The next UA Board of Regents meeting will be held November 7th and will discuss concerns with chancellors and student government representatives.
