On Dec. 11, our Facilities and Campus Services team was made aware of a pothole that shut down the westbound lanes of Northern Lights Boulevard between UAA Drive and Career Center Drive. It has since been upgraded to a sinkhole, and the lanes will remain closed for an undetermined amount of time while crews repair the damage. We anticipate the closure will extend through the week.
Finals week is a very stressful time for students. Students, please know that your professors have been made aware of the situation. Please communicate with them any delays you may experience due to this issue. We know this is an unexpected traffic challenge. Please take a deep breath. We want you to have a smooth and safe finals week.
Due to a complaint from the Office for Civil Rights (OCR) on behalf of a consumer regarding our website not meeting current web accessibility guidelines, the university has come to an agreement to have all OUCampus users complete a Web Accessibility training course. The course covers Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) and how to meet the respective success criteria.
Siteimprove is a suite the University of Alaska uses to improve accessibility around the campus' websites to meet WCAG standards. Meeting these standards is important in order to optimize the experience for various users, including those with disabilities. If you are new to Siteimprove, follow our accessibility tutorial and/or quality assurance tutorial to get started.
