In February 2022, the UAF Faculty Senate Committee on Teaching and Learning hosted Frank Boldt for a conversation about his teaching.
Frank was born and raised in Texas and served on active duty in the US Army for 6 years. He exited the military in 2013. He served primarily in 3 locations: 1) Brooke Army Medical Center at Fort Sam Houston in San Antonio, TX from 2007-2010, 2) 4th Infantry Division Headquarters at Fort Carson in Colorado Springs, Colorado from 2010-2013, and 3) during his time at Fort Carson, he deployed with 4th Infantry Division to COB Speicher, Iraq from 2010-2011.
He began his college career while in the military and actually completed his last class in Iraq earning his AA in General Studies from Liberty University online in 2011. Shortly after transitioning out of the service, he graduated with a BA in Criminal Justice with a Forensic Studies emphasis from the University of Colorado, Colorado Springs in 2014. From there, he completed an MA in Administration of Justice from the University of Alaska Fairbanks in 2016. He is extremely passionate about academics in general, the justice field particularly, and has a deep desire to help students become academically successful and reach their goals. His academic focus is on Justice Theories and Community Restorative Justice practices; he also currently serves as the Fairbanks Veterans Court (FVC) Mentor Coordinator.
During his free time, he is an explorer! He loves many outdoor activities including hunting, fishing, berry picking, hiking, and almost anything that engages or challenges physical and mental strength. He is all about making the moments in life count, embracing the freedoms that we enjoy in this country. A special thanks to the men and women who bravely serve in our military and for the veterans that went before them.
