Legal Studies faculty named influential persons by UAA first-year students

L to r: Prof. Brandeis, Prof. Periman,
and Prof. Fortson
Prof. Deb Periman, J.D.; Prof. Jason Brandeis, J.D.; and Prof. Ryan Fortson, J.D., Ph.D., Legal Studies faculty in the Justice Center, have been named influential persons by first-year students at UAA.

The Division of Student Access, Advising & Transition (SAAT) within the Office of Student Affairs asked first year students who took the MAP-Works surveys during the 2013-2014 academic year to name "a faculty member who has assisted them the most in their academic success at UAA." Students named over 150 faculty members, including our Legal Studies faculty, as influential persons.
The SAAT and MAP-Works hosted their first annual faculty appreciation reception on April 25 for individuals named by students.

MAP(Making Achievement Possible)-Works is a student success and retention tool linking students with the individualized resources they need, when they need them. By taking just two surveys per semester, MAP-Works @ UAA can assist first and second year students in getting connected to useful resources on campus.
