Diversity and Inclusion Action Plan

The University of Alaska Anchorage initiated a process to create a Diversity Action Plan in 2016. UAA recognizes the significance of having a Diversity and Inclusion Action Plan, and believes that it will have positive impacts for the University and the community. As the nation has become more globalized and seen a rise in diversified societies within, Universities and Colleges have established similar plans to meet their growing needs.  Alaska has a rich multi-cultural base and our University's student body reflects this. The goal is to create an approach that integrates all voices and constituencies in order to create a platform for Diversity and Inclusion at UAA. The plan will strive to emphasize social inclusion and equity through purposeful involvement and engagement of the full range of campus and community stakeholders. These efforts are designed to contribute to and enhance the rich, diverse and inclusive environment at UAA where all are welcome and encourage to thrive.
