UAA is excited to announce that UAA is developing a Diversity Action Plan that will guide us in embracing diversity in the broadest sense, strengthening our campus community and enriching the connections we have to Alaska and the world.
The Chancellor has appointed Dr. Andre Thorn (Director of UAA's Multicultural Center), Dr. Maria Williams (Director of Alaska Native Studies program) and Dr. Robert Boeckmann (Professor of Psychology) to lead this effort.
They will be reaching out to all the students, faculty, staff, and administration to seek their input on what UAA is doing well around diversity and what important challenges remain to strengthen our support of our diverse community and to ensure everyone feels welcome and supported in reaching their goals at UAA.
This year the Diversity and Inclusion Action Plan leaders will be holding focus groups and inviting you to share your views in a variety of other formats. I strongly encourage you to take advantage of these opportunities, so that our Diversity and Action Plan reflects your voice and guides us toward a stronger future together.
