Kellie Fritze named UAF Associate Vice Chancellor for Facilities

Kellie Fritze has been named associate vice chancellor for facilities after a competitive recruitment. Fritze is a UAF alumna with a bachelor’s degree in communication and a master of business administration degree.

Fritze started at UAF Facilities Services in 2000 as the leasing manager and has served in various facilities-related roles since then. Most recently, she served as the executive officer and director of business operations, with responsibility for budgeting and accounting for Facilities Services’ annual operating budget, in addition to managing UAF’s campus mail center, transportation services, central receiving, custodial services, leasing, and the warehouse and procurement shared services areas.

Fritze currently serves as vice chair of the Fairbanks North Star Borough Platting Board, and enjoys volunteering with the Catholic Schools of Fairbanks. She spends her off-time at various rinks, fields and racetracks supporting her family’s passion for sports, or relaxing at the family cabin in the woods.

“I am so thankful for the opportunity, and excited for the future of UAF and Facilities Services,” Fritze said. “We have an excellent team at Facilities, and I have already heard some great ideas on how we can further develop the Facilities team and enhance our services in order to best support the UAF community.”
