In May 2013 UAA embarked on a thoughtful, comprehensive self-evaluation process of reviewing, evaluating and prioritizing all of our academic programs and support functions. Prioritization was initiated to guide the growth and development of UAA, and to enable us to build the best university we can for Alaska.

The prioritization process has not been free of bumps, but it has allowed us to begin a crucial, participatory analysis of our current programs and services. As we continue to move forward with prioritization, our goals remain the same: to ensure strategic investment in the programs and services that most align with our mission, our strategic plan, and the needs of our students and state. In order to remain a healthy, sustainable university for years to come, this will be essential.
