Understanding, Engaging, and Celebrating Diversity

Alaska Native Language Map

 

“The university offers an amazing, culturally-diverse student body, but we can do more to incorporate who we are as Native people into all areas of university life and learning. We should be unapologetic about who we are as Alaskan Natives, and diversity, equity and inclusion should be felt throughout our universities. We need to encourage all staff to embrace the values that Alaska Natives bring as universal values, and we must always critically address our institutions and how they operate.”

Pearl Brower, Senior Advisor for Alaska Native Success, Institutional Diversity and Student Engagement
