Alaska Native Success Initiative

The University of Alaska System, guided by the Board of Regents, is committed to improving the participation and success of Alaska Natives through educational achievement statewide, and improving Alaska Native representation and success throughout the University of Alaska system.


Strategic Plan 2022 - 2027



We have an action plan for each university to address and overcome challenges and institute the changes we want to see to address the glaring equity gaps we see in the data on our native students, and increase the diversity of our entire system.  We will recruit and hire Indigenous faculty and staff to have a workforce that reflects our Alaska Native population which is about 20% in the state. The more integrated we are -- the more diversity that we have in all of our programs -- the stronger we become.
