UAA 2025

The UAA 2025 Strategic Plan provides a framework to define, communicate, and clarify expectations for our mission, vision, values and shared goals. It builds on our strengths and focuses our attention and resources on delivering tangible value to our stakeholders and creating areas of distinction. It clarifies our mission, sets an aspirational vision for the future, establishes the values that shape our behaviors and decisions, and results in a set of goals and objectives that reflect our ambitions and priorities, focuses our investments, and guides our continuous improvement efforts. The elements of this plan are cascaded throughout the academic and administrative units in Anchorage and our Community Campuses to align our efforts and maximize our shared contribution to success.

Coronavirus

The University of Alaska is partnering with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and the Alaska Department of Health and Social Services in response to the outbreak of COVID-19, also known as coronavirus disease 2019. Our health and emergency management teams are monitoring the status of the outbreak and are reporting back to university leaders so we can be prepared if COVID-19 directly affects our students or employees.
