Dear Seawolves,

Advancing the Culture of Respect

We believe a true advancement of the culture may be achieved by engaging in meaningful conversations with each other. Thus, UAA’s Office of Equity and Compliance is offering the series of Title IX In-Person Training as an alternative to the online module.

 

Increasing Transparency in the Student Fees Review Cycle

To ensure every student has an opportunity to engage in the conversation as we evaluate and review student fees with campus departments, we will require all departments considering a fee increase to provide evidences of a student input to the General Assembly.

Promoting Awareness of Food Insecurity and Homelessness

We fully support the Hunger and Homelessness Support Network committee as they research and evaluate ways to support individuals dealing with food insecurity and homelessness while attending classes.

Upcoming events:

 

Oct. 12 (9 p.m.-1 a.m.) – UAA Homecoming Dance (Dena’ina Center)

The event hosted by USUAA has become a UAA tradition that brings together more than 1,000 students. Don’t miss a chance to purchase the tickets in advance with a discount!

 

Oct. 15 (5:30-7 p.m.) – UAA Gubernatorial Debate (Wendy Williamson Auditorium)

For the first time in the USUAA’s history, we have organized a large-scale political event that is a result of the astounding cooperation of individuals and departments of UAA. Special thanks to the UAA Seawolf Debate Program and University Advancement.

 

Oct. 25 (2-3 p.m.) – Student Fee Review Open Forum (Student Union Den)

An opportunity hosted by USUAA to share with the student body proposed changes to the student fee and to solicit input prior to a campus-wide survey that will be conducted later in the fall.
