Capitol Report

UA President Jim Johnsen spent three days in Juneau last week meeting with legislators and staff to discuss the university’s budget and legislative priorities. The visit included presentations to the House Finance Committee and a joint hearing of the House and Senate Education Committees. The President met individually with more than a dozen legislators, and presented to the first hearing of the university’s house budget subcommittee.

UA was especially well-represented in the Capitol last week with the annual fly-in of our three alumni associations. The group kept a very busy schedule including meetings with legislators and the governor. Active engagement by our students and alumni is a valuable part of our advocacy efforts and makes an impact. We appreciate your enthusiasm and participation!
