We are Alaska's colleges and universities - how can we serve you better?
University of Alaska President Pat Gamble, with the support of the chancellors and Board of Regents, invites you to answer the question above as part of a process known as Shaping Alaska’s Future 2017.
In Shaping Alaska’s Future 2017, university leaders will ask students, faculty, staff, business leaders and employers, elected officials, alumni, donors, K-12 partners and community members how the UA System can become more productive and aligned with priorities of students, employers and the people of the state. Answers for each campus and region will be different. Alaska, like the UA System, is too big for “one size fits all.”
The University of Alaska was founded in 1917 as the Alaska Agricultural College and School of Mines. That first year, the campus was a single frame building with just six students. Today, the UA System features 16 vibrant campuses and numerous outreach centers, over 500 programs, and 34,000 students from Ketchikan to Kotzebue.
The Strategic Direction process will provide a framework for the next five years to 2017 -- the 100th anniversary of the university’s founding.
Please join in Shaping Alaska’s Future. By clicking on the “listening sessions” button at left, you’ll find a schedule of meetings across the state. Additional sessions will be held with students, faculty and staff in the spring.
"The University of Alaska inspires learning, and advances and disseminates knowledge through teaching, research, and public service, emphasizing the North and its diverse peoples."
