UAF chancellor not seeking top job

Posted: Tuesday, January 26, 2010

FAIRBANKS - University of Alaska Fairbanks Chancellor Brian Rogers says he has no plans to pursue the top job in the university system, despite an endorsement from retiring President Mark Hamilton.

The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner report the board of regents will meet next week at Anchorage to review and discuss candidates. Hamilton said last summer he would retire once a replacement is found.

Rogers is a former state lawmaker who served on the board of regents before becoming UAF chancellor in May. He says he wouldn't have taken that job if he were looking for a promotion.
