Conversation with the Provost - UAA and UArctic
In February of 2014 the Office of Academic Affairs hosted an event open to students, staff and faculty to provide both an introduction to the UArctic program for those who were interested in learning about it, and also a forum for open discussion on the direction that UAA's participation in the organization should take moving forward.

Winter Design at UAA Winterfest 2014
After visiting Finland and Iceland for UArctic conferences on Arctic Sustainable Art and Design, art professor Herminia Din was inspired by the use outdoor spaces there and wanted to create a similar atmosphere back home at UAA. Her efforts, along with assistant professor of health sciences Bree Kessler's, resulted in the Winter Design Project: A Design Exploration, which was integrated into the larger UAA Winterfest 2014 event.
