The Center for Advancing Faculty Excellence (CAFE) and the UAA/APU Difficult Dialogues Initiative sponsored this public event, a debate by the Seawolf Debate team, comment from faculty and a public discussion over the question:

Arguing for the proposition were Andrew Kerofsky and Matt Fox.
Arguing in opposition were Wiley Cason and Brittany Bennett.
Members of the faculty making comment included economists Matt Berman and Mouhsine Guettabi from the Institute of Social and Economic Research; Willie Hensley, a visiting distinguished professor with the College of Business and Public Policy; and Mike Doogan, former journalist, legislator and current Atwood Chair with the UAA Department of Journalism and Public Communication.
An audience of about 100 people attended this debate and discussion, including many Alaskans with deep knowledge of the state’s history and oil development background.
