Dear UAA Community,

Thanks to our Title IX team and to you, more than 500 employees have completed Title IX training at UAA. For those who did not have a chance to attend one of the 28 training sessions in June, watch for future Title IX trainings. There is no better way to stop sexual harassment and misconduct than to be informed and educated.  I am asking all faculty and staff to attend this important training.

Yesterday, Prioritization Taskforces provided a review of their processes and general overview of their findings to Chancellor’s Cabinet and Prioritization Steering Committee. The Taskforces also delivered confidential reports to cabinet for review. We will review the reports over the next couple of weeks and release them to our campus community shortly thereafter. A post-process timeline, venue for reading and responding to findings, and other details will soon become available. As we continue this process, we are committed to strengthening and aligning UAA's mission and goals to make us the best institution possible.

Thank you to the teams who have worked so hard on this process and thank you to our UAA community for your investment of time and energy. This is a worthy endeavor that will make us stronger.
